There is a reason for that. gnome-core exists so that someone who wants a
gnome system can install it all at once, and then they will have everything
that is expected to be available when they are using the "Gnome Environment"
- This is not what you want, so don't worry about it.
this is a little bit like complaining that xfce4 depends on xfwm4, when you
already get by perfectly well with fvwm or something...
