> Assuming we implement this group or meta-package as something of policy, i.e. every repository package is assumed to depend on it. This would then make base similar to base-devel, except for depends() instead of makedepends(). 
> With base-devel, we've always encouraged people to remove the makedepends already in that group. Would we do the same for "base", i.e. remove dependencies that, beforehand, were explicit?

We've been doing this for as long as I can remember.

Only 156 packages have glibc in their depends array.
