I think one underlying goal is to get to a point where the

I beg to differ. I think this is a rather technical argument with
zero user benefit. Even a trivial loss in usability (which clearly
is the case here) can not be justified with a bit of HDD space saved.
xmms is a much better player then rhythmbox IMO, and I don't give
a $PROFANITY that it depends on gtk1. Not ideal, I agree, but not
having it around would be a major loss of functionality from my POV.
