I don't see why that means we should keep them. Tradition for tradition's sake?

This is a good point. In fact:

-rwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 11.0K Mar 10 13:36 /usr/X11R6/bin/xeyes
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 34.8K Mar 10 13:36 /usr/X11R6/bin/xlogo

I guess there's no real benefit to removing 45.8K for the sake of saving 45.8K. The trade-off: we use an extra 46K of disk space, and, if someone down the road misses these programs they don't have to do a pkg_add.

That's kind of silly, when there's:

$ xdpyinfo | grep RENDER
