They are required by those packages, true, but they can also be used separately 
in documents. That's why the package needs splitting :
1. users and packages that need the whole set can install all the subpackages 
(via a metapackage if necessary)
2. users and packages that only need a single font family install only the 
single subpackage

Especially since aliasing means some of those fonts have more side effects than 
others, installing the whole set all the time won't help anyone. (any Helvetica 
variant has *huge* side effects)
