I don't need, and will never need, 999.999% of TeX Live.  Yet I install 
the full thing, and have done so since at least 2008 without ever 
deleting an older version.  Storage these days costs nothing (I just 
added an Intel 1TB M.2 SSD for less than GBP 90-00), and if installing 
everything can make /my/ life easier, then I am certain that it can do 
the same for you.  Bite the bullet, install everything, save yourself 
(and others) never-ending grief.
