the much cleaner solution would be as said split packages to <packagename>
and <packagename-manuals> and "tsflags=nodocs" is only a hack and if we
speak about "Software Management call for RFEs" it would make a lot of sense
if someone uninstalled the man-packages itself  not pull "-manuals" as trigger
