Because as it stands now the OP's question on whether to add coreutils
as a dependency is valid and would have to be positively confirmed. Or
rephrased: the current situation is that the practice and the
guidelines diverge and we need to fix one of them.
Obviously, 'coreutils' MUST be a Requires(...) when they are used in the
corresponding scriptlet. Afais, only some Core package are violating
this simple rule and must be fixed.

Is there such big difference in the size between 'redhat-lsb' and 'KDE'?
