Let me point out a hidden constraint for this fc4 timescale. You have
to think in terms of 'srpms' subpackages can only be dropped..
subpackages can not be moved out of Core into Extras. The -doc
packages you describe are actualy subpackages built from the same srpm
as the related runtime package. Its inappropriate to drop
documentation completely.. and since they are subpackages from the
same srpm you can't move them across the Core/Extras boundary. So
really the packages you suggest are non-starters.. unless package can
be re-engineered so that the docs are built from their own seperate
