[R-pkg-devel] CRAN Non-Triviality Requirement

I want to publish a single dataset, and I am concerned about part of the
CRAN policies. The preamble of the policies [1] says,

> A package's contribution has to be non-trivial

The single dataset [2, 3] is recent and not very widely known.
Is it considered trivial?

If so, what would be a good way to publish the dataset? For example,
is there a package for contributed datasets, akin to datasets in base?
