In a nutshell, packages declare dependencies. So, for example, if you have
bare bones install, and you want to, for example, install Ant, then, once
you do apt-get install ant, it will discover that it needs Java to run and
will also install Java, or if not possible to install will alert you, that
you need to install it.
So, for example, if you are going to run test before commit (to SDK
repository), you would need testing environment, frameworks, framework
sources, compilers and AIR sources / binaries (because you need to know
your commit won't break them too). So, if you install flex-testing, you get
all the code there is in the repository.

There is another option of only source distribution with no binaries (not
sure if it will be of much interested), but if such option existed you
could also, for example, install only sources and compile yourself - in
this way skipping the install of binaries.
