Well, please do not add hardcoded dependencies on all those packages to 
desktop environment packages. If I don't need fonts for [insert language 
here], I should be able to remove them. The fonts group in comps, which is 
already installed by default, is the right place for those fonts.

Localized live kickstarts also need to be able to remove fonts for locales 
they don't support, to make room for packages to support the locales they do 
support.
