it's also entirely possible that someone is not using GNOME at all

docs should generally be splitted out to sub-packages without
hard dependencies because it's also possible that someone has
20,30,40 machines in the same network and on the same SAN storage
and does not need waste the space for docs/manpages 40 times

[root at master:~]$ which man
/usr/bin/which: no man in (/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/root/bin:/scripts)
