You'd want to do that even if they are useful for some users?

In any case the point wasn't about choices you may make in RHEL, but
that one cannot say something don't work on Fedora and will on RHEL. Of
course you may chose the reverse (that is something that works on fedora
doesn't work on RHEL) -- even for good reasons (I don't think removing
static libs that are in Fedora is a good thing given that they should be
carefully chosen such as to be only the static libs that may have a use).
