I would then suggest putting this stance into practice and purging all non-required fonts-, icons- and theme packages (and whatever else might be in the repo that does not fit). That way I won't go all happy when I see a package for Iosevka only to be let down by the fact that it's a dismembered dud of a package.

It's a sound policy and stance which I agree with for the most part - but I could see "popular demand" as an addition - might submit a PR :)
