I think it's silly to split packages for no good reason. And doing it to avoid circular deps is only a good reason in extreme cases where they can't be worked around in any other way. Standard Gentoo practice is one ebuild per upstream package and useflags to toggle optional functionality. I don't see any reason to deviate from that practice in the case of poppler.
