Strange. Language packs in (including those for

Is LibreOffice's packaging different from this point of view? And why?

I know it's not a real answer to your question. :)

Well, not a complete answer but still enough to see a questionable
technical choice, that can hopefully be either reviewed or explained
with good arguments, taking into account the
volunteers work.

Being the maintainer of the Italian dictionary package, I'm sad to see
LibreOffice trashing my work (and doing the same with other
community-contributed dictionary packages, like Danish as seen in this
thread) without explanation.

The word "trashing" is maybe a bit strong in my opinion. Dictionaries
are built in e.g. in Windows builds, and some Linux distros are also
packaging them. I think general Linux builds should include the
dictionaries and distro specific builds should exclude them and should
ship current system wide dictionary packages at the same time.
