Aside from calling people names (yes, don't do it!), this is 
obviously a case of SPEC generated by a script. I guess we just 
pull to Fedora whole TeXLive. So,

a) whatever you think about the quality of packages included, 
the morons are not Fedora maintainers, but you have to target 
your ire upstream, OR

b) you should sit down and propose and make TeXLive 
maintainers/users some mechanism how to choose and select only 
relevant package. To know which packages are relevant is however 
quite tricky. I would tend to agree with you that the ones you 
mentioned are probably obsolete, but it is really hard to 
decide. My wife relies desperately on linguex (and its dependend 
packages, e.g. cgloss4e)?  Would you know whether it is relevant 
or not?

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its
victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live
under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The
robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at
some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own
good will torment us without end, for they do so with the
approval of their consciences.
