Oh, no, there are many more than those.

There are basically two "positions" on that:
1) yes, you're right, it's pointless and there is much more build power
on build.o.o (also a lot more packagers though ;))
2) we had those packages first, it's not ours to remove, and the people
who are using the packman repository also use packman because of those
(and only want to add one big repository instead of a dozen of
repositories from build.o.o)

I'm probably exaggerating position 2, and it's not difficult to find out
which one I'm endorsing *cough*, but it's a somewhat loaded discussion.
