You're speaking about yourself. I am speaking in general. How is it more
practical that the documentation is not available? You raise disk space.
I see that as a benefit if you have a small amount of disk space. But I
don't see how that makes not including documentation practical. Might be
practical to have the installer automatically detect a small amount of
disk space and exclude documentation. But in general not having any
documentation available is not practical at all; you have to rely on an
internet connection, hope that the documentation is available online,
furthermore you have to search for it.

Not installing documentation,  might be some reasons for it, but
'practical': I don't see it.
