We are not talking about deleting data from the harddisk. We are
talking about installing and uninstalling, not just deleting. The
issue is to avoid the installation (if not wanted) and consequently
avoid updates.

I expected the discussion about the technical options to be quite long
and not at all trivial, I did not expect such a discussion about the
"why". There are valid use cases which answer the "why" quite clear
and simple.
