So it is a missing dependency, in my opinion.

No it's not. People may want to use an actually usable editor and not have
their system polluted with this relict of history.

I guess I should file bugs against cvs, sudo and fcron which all have
unnecessary Requires on vim-minimal.

That's probably a good idea not so much because vi is a "relic of history" but simply because it's not a good idea to require a specific editor simply because the package contains a config file. Virtually every app out there contains config files so imagine if all of them depended on the editor of the package maintainers choice. If at all then the dependency should be a virtual one so the user can choose to install his/her prefered editor.
