exactly. The package splitting is there to lower the packages dependencies.
Or more exactly, to have a balance between standard and optional
features, against needed dependencies.

So apart from installing the core (drivers, upsd, upsmon) comprising
the standard targets (serial and USB drivers), the other packages are
optional things  that would generate too much depends (ie NetSNMP for
nut-snmp, or libgd+httpd for nut-cgi).
