I don't see why jack needs to be splitted for this, it works just fine
with jack installed in a single package. Example Audioplayer: Aqualung

In general it seems to be a matter of taste, and while debian folk sees
benefits in it others simply don't think it's worth the trouble.

IMHO it simply shouldn't get in the way. And a package management system
shouldn't get in the way of programs and users.
