Consider SUSE's xorg-x11.srpm which has been split into 97 new (source)

srcpkg made more work, I would argue.
You are right, another point is that openSuse can provide better
installations, less unused sofware will be installed. But on the other
hand to many packages lead to a higher load on the obs which is a
problem already as all of you know. So it needs to be balanced betweeen
these two causes.
The limitations of the OBS implementation should not keep us from
doing sensible packaging. Instead, the implementation should be
revised to perform better.
Just like zypper came to be compared to earlier solutions.
