mythtv-setup needs mythtv-backend. And you need to be able to run
mythtv-setup on every machine. So, you end up with a enabled
 mythbackend service on a frontend only machine.

BTW: I do not need it, but isn't it Suse policy to have a
 rcmythbackend also?

That's fine with me. BTW, you can save download time, if you only
 get a Subversion diff and use that as a patch in the .spec.
