What's the download size got to do with anything? Do you want to
force people to use an old, unsupported version of Wine because its
download size is smaller? Please, don't conflate unrelated issues.

Says who? Don't make unsupported claims, please. I've never used
OpenGL support in Wine, but I have used gecko.
Jacek's justification has been the number of bugs that are closed
invalid due to an invalid configuration. Strongly encouraging people
to install gecko would reduce the time we all spend looking at bogus
bug reports. Personally, I think that's worth considering, especially
because developer man hours are perhaps the most scarce resource for
the Wine project.
