With a English only default, yes?  I prefer comprehensive locale support
of the box and since the default download in Fedora is a Live image, you
don't get to choose packages during installation. Again, people who care
or want that level of control should be using kickstart instead IMO.

Bloat is a matter of perspective. What you consider bloat, I consider a
useful feature. Apparently people who feel strongly otherwise haven't
bothered to file a RFE on this and convince rel-eng of their case. The
current status quo remains till then.
