Fedora is not in a bad state with respect to fine grained dependencies
(it was quite bad back, at least up to FC4), mostly 
* thanks to olpc,
* to maintainers who reported these issues,
* because there is always some space needed on the live disc
* thanks to split to some -libs because of multilib issues.

Unless it has been solved, there was still an issue with metacity (and
maybe gnome) and themes interdependencies. Also there are still
monolithic big beasts like texlive, but I am not sure that it is
that desirable to fix those.
