At least packaging-wise, I think it would certainly be helpful to
split the current monolith of resource-agents.  Luckily, streamlined
user experience (catalogue of resources that are readily configurable)
is not necessarily in opposition to deliberate picking of particular
cherries from the basket (weak dependencies, catch-all meta packages
like it exists with fence-agents-all dependencies-only RPM, etc.).
Exactly to avoid the dependency creep.

Sorry for little off-topic, I don't have any opinion on the main
discussed matter.
