I recommend the following changes in dependencies:

I. Missing/unneeded dependencies:
1. python2-mako was used in the context plugin, but now it's disabled, so this dependency could be removed.
2. libdiscid is not used by rhythmbox, it can be safely removed.
3. zeitgeist is required for the Zeitgeist plugin, add it to optdepends.

II. Dependencies that can be optional:
4. libdmapsharing is required for DAAP Music Sharing only.
5. grilo is required for Grilo media browser plugin only. Move it to makedepends, and add grilo-plugins to optdepends.
6. lirc-utils is required for LIRC plugin only.
7. libgpod is required for Portable Players - iPod plugin only.
8. libmtp is required for Portable Players - MTP plugin only.

I attached a diff file for the current PKGBUILD with my proposed changes.
This task depends upon
