It's not true that none of them can be used without all others. And afaik the main reason for the split is because of dependencies. They don't want to force everyone to install firebird, mysql, postgresql, ptcgraph, gtk, gtk2, qt and every other single thing for which FPC has bindings. On the other hand, they want to ensure that when someone installs those FPC bindings, that the package these bindings are for also gets installed.
