wild and crazy selinux dependencies?

I was just trying to remove as many selinux related packages as possible
(a fedora 9 system) to avoid having to download their updates when I have
selinux turned off anyway.

Several of the rpms I tried to erase want to drag all kinds of ridiculous
stuff with them, and I'm just sort of curious why.

For example, attempting to erase policycoreutils results in this list:

 policycoreutils         i386       2.0.52-8.fc9           installed      3.3 M

How on earth could texlive need a dependency on policycoreutils? All tex does is
read files, process the data, and generate new files. If tools that do that need
selinux, why doesn't everything else on the system depend on it?
