Elastic Agent - Remove Unused Beats

We want to use Elastic Agent for our server deployments but the package size is larger than competing technologies. 90% of our servers just need Metricbeat installed so I'm wondering if we can strip out the other beats .exes (and configs) from the components directory to make the Agent more lightweight. does the Agent install and require all beats to work? or does it only install the configured beats?
