You are nit-picking at words.

Though a Fedora installation with yum + rpm isn't "truely minimal", it's
the minimal install to keep an installation usable/maintainable.

And yes, the fact yum pulls in python is a real problem on small
systems. Even worse are the system-config-* tools, most of which pull in
many more packages and don't even work without X.
