Docker installed by default due to cockpit dependency chain

I am not sure if that was intentional or not but to be sure, I'd like to 
bring up this dependency "issue":

We've tried to install minimal Fedora with KS where in %packages was 
just @core. This installed

fedora-release-server -> cockpit -> cockpit-docker -> docker(-io)

I understand why Cockpit is installed by default but I don't think 
docker should be part of such minimal install..

My proposal would be to change the dependency so that
     Requires: cockpit

     Requires: cockpit-docker

This would mean non-existent Containers page in Cockpit in minimal 
install which would magically appear when the user installs docker.
