Since I didn't got that many answers here, I just did some tests and it
works quite well the way it is in fact. Using glibc for basesystem is a
good idea because bash will bring it in and almost everything brings
bash (or /bin/sh) in. So only some particular packages (noarch, no
interpreter) can be installed without filesystem (I also found some very
strange lack of dependency on libc!!!). This leads to a rather long list
on my computer nevertheless, with, for example

man-pages-2.67-1.fc9
mailcap-2.1.25-1.fc8
busybox
ipw2200-firmware-3.0-9
rootfiles-8.1-1.1.1
words-3.0-12.fc7
termcap
control-center-filesystem-2.20.1-6.fc9
emacs-el-22.1-8.fc9

and many doc packages.

So point is that the lack of dependency on the filesystem package cannot
really be overcome.
