There's a proposal to do just this at the bottom of the first post in

I noticed this when I installed firewalld on Arch, which does not place
it in a separate subpackage like Fedora does (Arch prefers vanilla
packaging). It's so out of place in GNOME that it makes firewalld really
undesirable on Arch. I wonder if it should live in a separate
repository? It just doesn't seem like the sort of thing most firewalld
users would want by default.
