The analogy here would be if installing .zip support installed two

Will that do anything to solve the problem? That'd make it difficult for
a user who actually wants those apps to find them, but the 99% of users
who don't want those apps will still have them installed, correct?
I'm not sure those two apps are actually the problem, either. It's not
their fault that another application (LibreOffice Base, I believe, which
intentionally is not installed by default, but is now pulled in by
unoconv) decided to depend on them. Base is the one I would blacklist if
you must blacklist anything... but that doesn't help with the unoconv
