Default What is gcc-3.4-base?

The description of gcc-3.4-base is:

Description: The GNU Compiler Collection (base package)
This package contains files common to all languages and libraries
contained in the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC).

and this package doesn't depend on anything. And the contents:

vin:~> dpkg -L gcc-3.4-base
/.
/usr
/usr/share
/usr/share/doc
/usr/share/doc/gcc-3.4-base
/usr/share/doc/gcc-3.4-base/NEWS.Debian.gz
/usr/share/doc/gcc-3.4-base/TODO.Debian
/usr/share/doc/gcc-3.4-base/copyright
/usr/share/doc/gcc-3.4-base/changelog.gz
/usr/share/doc/gcc-3.4-base/README.Debian.gz
/usr/share/doc/gcc-3.4-base/changelog.Debian.gz

What's the point of having a package containing only such non-user doc
and why are there packages (e.g. libg2c0) that depend on this package?
