I don't see how you can say that either is part of any desktop, though
kdebase depends on HAL (gnome-core depends on neither).  Your system will
work fine without either (as will X).  If he removes udev he will have to
do some stuff by hand, but he seems to want that.

X is quite useable without any "desktop" and certainly does not require
HAL.  Are you confounding "desktop" and "window mamager"?
