Why do you care that much about them? Of course they increase the memory 
footprint but not for megabytes.

Don't make it too complicated with too many rules. There are already 
many conventions to get stuff included. Now we want to add even more to 
get it excluded again? I'd say don't fix it before there is the 
requirement. spring-configurator can always easily be extended for such 
a feature.
