I had also found it out before seeing your message. So, I've cancelled the NMU.

Anyway, I also stumbled upon this lintian info:

I: gnome-themes-standard: arch-dep-package-has-big-usr-share 3549kB 99%

That made me plan to move the non-engine parts into -common instead.
What do you think?

OK. I didn't think normal users want those a11y themes, so I hadn't added the
dependency. Will do it now as you suggest, anyway.
