There is a use-case for this: shipping KF5::SyntaxHighlighting as part of a 
commercial product, which requires excluding highlighting files with licenses 
problematic for distribution (see e.g. QtCreator).

That's all-or-nothing though, no individual file downloads, and thus doesn't 
have the dependency problem.
