Maybe, but I think they're important.  At any rate their complement is 
infinite, but in most cases it is more interesting to list the finite 
sequence rather than its complement.

Take, for instance, A3173 - the class number problem.  It has nine terms: 
1,2,3,7,11,19,43,67,163 and that is more interesting (and important) than 
the complement: 4,5,6,8,9,10,12,...
