I have no understanding of what a packetfilter firewall actually does,
and therefore I won't install one.  On the other hand, it's easy (for
me) to understand how hosts.deny works.

Furthermore, AFAIK iptables isn't a dependency, but rather a
configuration option when compiling the kernel - then it is *not* a
dependency like any other.
