I do not think that this dependency can be removed completely. As you
wrote already, it will require developing of new features (dynamic
loading) and not only some changes on the packaging layer.

By splitting the krb5-libs you might save some parts of the 1.2MB.
E.g. the libkadm5* libs and perhaps the krb4 part might be moved into
separate packages. But compared with e.g. 'python' or 'perl' packages,
the save 500kB might be just peanuts...
