I think he is referring mostly to the game packages. Currently if you
want to setup a dedicated game server, you will also have to install the
whole graphics dependency stack like mesa on a headless, X-less server.
This is obviously undesirable.

Splitting would make sense in this case, though so far due to lack of
time these packages weren't spit.

In detail, it would mean splitting a package like nexuiz into
nexuiz-client, nexuiz-server, nexuiz-data, nexuiz-common. I agree that
this looks Debian-ish but it might actually make sense.
