OpenGApps != microG

OpenGApps are just the usual bloated proprietary Google Apps, just packaged in a nice and handy way.

See https://lineage.microg.org/#faq1

Well, it's just the Google play services and some other API they are attempting to replace. Not even mentioning poor documentation.

But anyway, what's the point if I'm going to use ~10 of proprietary GApps anyway (maps, keep, inbox...) ?

The point is that it's entirely up to you how many google apis you want to use, and at what terms. You aren't installing an opaque google play blob as a system app.
