Default About boosting sync

Has anyone ever noticed that portage tree contains a lot of md5 hashes, which are not at all important for using it? I think that it does not make reliability or functionality smaller any bit if those would all stay in sync servers - anyway, syncing would go much faster and this tree smaller. What about removing all those md5 hashes and downloading them only when they're needed?
