It contains hsc2hs data all dependent packages use.

Why shouldn't this be supposed to work? It does install needed
files (two include files for hsc2hs), and they do stand for
themselves to justify a package of its own.

And other packages could also want to distribute just data. Say, a
database of daytime saving dates to be used by a clock package.
