It is bad driver. Mirror servers are hardware. And this enormous number of packages cause problems for people (system administrators and operations). I've read almost whole thread and looks like people, who raise voice against such fine-grained splitting, are mostly ops of many servers, including legacy ones (and 11 will be legacy in 5 years, too!). Not developers, not code contributors, but "end-users" of server OS.
