If anything anaconda is more dependent on other packages than it used to 
be these days. It no longer has its own 'first stage loader' (it uses 
dracut since F17), it no longer does its own network configuration (it 
uses NM), and there are other similar less large-scale changes that have 
gone in in the last few releases. Taking more advantage of shared 
components has been a focus of anaconda development since F16 or so.
