It seems that about half of the packages that place files in
/etc/xinetd.d require xinetd and half do not.  I'm not sure why that
is in many cases.

$ repoquery --qf '%{name}' --whatprovides '/etc/xinetd.d/*' | \
sort -u | while read p; do
    repoquery --requires $p | \
        grep -q xinet && echo "$p: YES" || echo "$p: NO"
done

I'll try to ping the fedora-packaging list to get some opinions.
Unless there are good reasons for not requiring xinetd, it seems to me
that most packages dropping things into /etc/xinetd.d should bring in
xinetd as well.
