I don't want to just disable the key binding to invoke the HUD, I want to remove the HUD.

I notice in System Monitor that something called hud-service is taking up 65 megabytes. Besides that, I'm always invoking the HUD by accident merely by going back a page in a web browser. So I'd like to just completely uninstall anything pertaining to the HUD.

Is this possible?

I don't think is possible, since the HUD is part of Unity itself, you can check:

There they show you how to disable it

    That is what I was reading before I asked my question. It sounds like basically all I would disable would be a key binding, but a daemon could still be occupying resources.
