why?

virtually nobody needs the browser-plugin and if you read
the security news of the last few months it would be a
dmaned bad idea to install this crap on every computer
as dependency because it is a useless security hole

dependencies are there to make sure packages have all they
need installed any ANY DEPENDENCY which pulls more than
needed is simply broken because it would it make impossible
to have setups like mine below where the OS needs 6.3 GB
while VMware Workstation and ZendStudio are 1.5 GB from this
and so my Fedora itself needs 4.8 GB - guess how fast dist
upgrades on my machines are running and why they have no
dependencie-problems since years....................
