I think there are some server packages, for example ejabberd and 
roundcubemail. These packages are only interesting for root servers, but not 
for desktop computers. But I think they should stay in community, because 
there are not so many root servers with pkgstats installed.

oidentd and pam_mysql you need only in a big network infrastructur. But 
without that package my university hadn't change there installation from 
ubuntu to archlinux. I think such packages should stay too.
