If you feel the dependencies are useless or the package may better be split
in smaller packages in order to reduce dependencies, you should fill a bug
report in Fedora's bug tracking system.

Well, if you don't stick to Fedora's packages, I think the better option for
now is to install a "vanilla" TL07, and later the TL08 (unless you feel like
beta-testing TL08 now).  I don't really see the point in installing mpm just
for the docs, it's rather usefull to keep thing uptodate (and will be
useless imo as soon as TL08 is released).
