In theory I agree. Still...
What bugs me with vim-minimal on Fedora is usually that it's lacking
basic vim functionality, even if it does not rely on external packages.
I'm not quite sure if I remember correctly, but in the past I think I
even had problems with color settings for syntax decoration, which
forced me to use the vim-enhanced package. And I'm really not using
any complicated stuff, like text folding or so...
So my question is, is vim-minimal at least more or less feature complete
as far as the feature doesn't require external dependencies?
Apart from that, yes, vim-minimal should be a Base package, finally ;)
