I am always wary when someone calls bloat!

Start with saying what kind of bloat!

XFCE aspires to be a fully functional desktop. It has added separate applications, and new dependencies, but define the bloat.

Clearly they have tried to put together a suite of *lightweight* alternatives to necessary applications, and most are optional.

Functionality is not bloat! Unneeded functionality is.
