Yes, I have voiced that concern several times myself. I personally do not even 
understand where all this fear of installing many packages comes from. I 
think it is because the ZCML is pulling in too many default registrations and 
people are afraid of those, which I understand. But to create new packages 
just because you do not want to use other parts of it is silly.
