  • +some libraries

If you consider these acceptable losses, then sure – go ahead.ahead. Note that you’ll also be asked to remove some meta-packages. You can safely remove metapackages. However, if the metapackages change in later releases, you’ll not automatically get those changes. You can write down which metapackages you’re asked to remove, and then do dnf install $metapackage after every major release to make sure you stay up to date with changes.

You can also just disable PackageKit’s systemd service, and ignore it.
