Default Why do these packages depend on corefonts?

Why the hell do these packages depend on corefonts?:

app-emulation/wine-1.1.6
net-www/netscape-flash-10_rc20080915
x11-misc/slim-1.3.1

It somehow makes sense with wine, maybe even - remotely - with flash.
But why, why should *slim* need Windows fonts to work?

According to the slim webpage, it only needs freetype (along with
libjpeg, libpng, and X11).

It appears to be explained in the bug about it though:

"the default theme uses verdana which is provided by corefonts"

Not only that, but why don't they also accept media-fonts/liberation-fonts?
In my case it is media-gfx/imagemagick-6.4.0.6 that forces me to have
media-fonts/corefonts, as I don't have installed any of the 3 packages
you mentioned
