For a typical project (where sub-projects have direct dependencies among
each other), it might make sense.  However, gettext is not;
'gettext-runtime' and 'gettext-tools' can be seen as two independent
projects and can even be separately installed (see PACKAGING).  Given
the isolation is deliberate, merging them doesn't sound right to me.

Yeah, I understand.  Perhaps we could do some optimization here.
