- Well, I had submitted a corresponding bug report, namely

    https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=388211

  which got closed immediately as "NOTABUG" based on the personal taste
  of the/one package co-/maintainer after which I felt compelled to
  bring the issue to this list in order to learn about how other
  community members think about it.

- The "reasonable use case" is that as an exclusive GNOME user I'm
  encumbered with certain packages/toolkits that I'd like to get rid
  of on my system, and that current dependencies prevent me from
  doing so.
