Yeah. See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=621812 for some
discussion of this.
IMHO, I would prefer also to see the subpackage dropped and pointing
people to a web site for further docs if possible.
Thats a fair bit of BW hit on every sync for my mirror, as well as lots
of disk space, etc. (I'd guess around 6GB or so with the base/updates
for 12/13/14/rawhide trees)
