That's always been the case and why software collections came about.
Rewriting system tools to make it easier for someone who might like to use
a different version of python at /usr/bin sounds like overkill.  A lot EC2
AMIs, public and private, are 8GB+ snapshots with 2GB+ of OS installed.

I may be "broken record"ing but I'm still seeing context switches between
the cloud "flavors" (atomic, docker base, cloud-ified server).  We need to
be careful were making the right changes to the right "flavor".  Ripping
everything out of Docker Base makes sense, not so much for Cloud Server.  A
common baseline across the board that says "Cloud Server is Base + Server
and Docker Base is Base + Stripped System Utils" may not be worth the
effort to maintain.
