I may be completely wrong, but couldn't it be assumed that
coreutils is always installed? A linux system without rm doesn't
make much sense...

For Extras, at least, coreutils is listed as one of the exceptions to the BuildRequires rule:

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Guidelines#head-4cadce5e79d38a63cad3941de1dadc9d25d67d30


Those only speaks about BuildRequires though, and there i completely agree that a certain base set of development packages has to be installed before trying to rebuild anything. What my test covered though is install and remove requirements (resp. PreReqs to be more precise) and without that information rpm can't determine wether it needs to install coreutils before or after some package.

Read ya, Phil
