    Isn't there some sort of idea that GNU should limit the number of
    "official" packages, 

Well, there is no limit on the number, per se.

    avoiding too many redundancies...?

Indeed, rms feels strongly that a new GNU package should not duplicate
functionality in an existing GNU package.  (Although there are a few
packages that do more or less the same job in GNU, they more or less
crept in by mistake :), and are not grounds for accepting more.)
