I might equally suggest that authors should respect the 
wishes of the community :-}

its a good question. but beyond our remit.

in my book, TeX Live has three goals:

  1. it includes everything it can. it does not make choices 
about whether package A is good or bad

  2. it follows the open source guidelines, so that 
everything can be redistributed and changed

  3. it follows the best available standards

for the last N years, we have not packaged the cs* stuff 
quite right; now that Fabrice has noticed, and fixed it, we 
are even closer to one our goals.
