Regarding footprint size:

The protocol providers are designed as "plugins" that sit between MINA's 
ServiceRegisty (networking front-end) and JNDI's InitialContextFactory 
(apacheds core).  Other than the inclusion of schema specific to the 
protocols (krb5kdc.schema, apachedns.schema, and dhcp.schema), there is 
no other increase in footprint size to the core.

Alex mentioned the protocols can be turned off if they are not needed. 
As plugins, they can be totally removed.
