I haven't read the whole thread, but this is indeed so easy. Just create
a split package mtr which builds the two packages mtr-cli and mtr-gtk.
mtr-cli could then be removed from AUR.

A request for such a split package should be filed to flyspray as a bug
report or feature request for the package mtr from [extra]. And the
removal request for the AUR package mtr-cli would then belong to this
mailing list.
