Default lots of X pkgs no longer needed

After an eix-sync yesterday, I found many x11-* pkgs to update,
but also quite a number which are apparently no longer needed,
tho' they remain in the tree (from my homemade pkg list):

120623 x11-apps/xcmsdb-1.0.3 [for xorg-x11 : otiose]
120623 x11-themes/xcursor-themes-1.0.3 [for xorg-x11 : otiose]
120623 x11-apps/xcursorgen-1.0.4 [for xcursor-themes]
120623 x11-apps/xev-1.1.0 [for xorg-x11 : otiose]
120623 x11-apps/xgamma-1.0.4 [for xorg-x11 : otiose]
120623 x11-apps/xhost-1.0.4 [for xorg-x11 : otiose]
120623 x11-apps/xinput-1.5.3 [for xorg-x11 : otiose]
120623 x11-apps/xkbevd-1.1.2 [for xorg-x11 : otiose]
120623 x11-apps/xlsatoms-1.1.0 [for xorg-x11 : otiose]
120623 x11-apps/xmodmap-1.0.5 [for xorg-x11 : otiose]
120623 x11-apps/xpr-1.0.3 [for xorg-x11 : otiose]
120623 x11-apps/xwd-1.0.4 [for xorg-x11 : otiose]
120623 x11-apps/xwud-1.0.3 [for xorg-x11 : otiose]
120623 x11-libs/libXfontcache-1.0.5 [for kdebase-startkde : otiose]
120623 x11-apps/xf86dga-1.0.3 [for xorg-x11 : otiose]
120623 x11-libs/libXxf86dga-1.1.3 [for xf86dga]

I've removed them all & there seems to be no difference in my desktop.

Does anyone have any explanation or other comment ?

Do you have xorg-x11 or just the more minimal xorg-server installed?

All of those above packages look like old cruft that's been superceded
by other stuff, or only part of a full X install. IOW, you likely never
used them anyway.
