Thanks for the explanation... Indeed it isn't a live system but a 
filesystem being populated at the same time scripts are run, so having
coreutils required is indeed important. Maybe, when the filesystem is 
depopulated coreutils cannot be removed anyway but who knows, it is indeed
still a good thing to have everything right.

I don't know if it is easy/possible/interesting, but if it is, could it be 
possible to do similar things for extras without too much work? Or maybe 
it is too early as extras are not handled by anaconda anyway?
