You're right that it's not included in Slackware and its ilk by default, but in those systems RPM itself is present and works, and with no ill effects, since they don't use conventional package management anyway.

The only situations where it wouldn't work is if you started getting into the Gentoo and Arch areas, but then you're talking about a relatively small subset of highly technical desktop Linux users.

FYI, Slackware has a working RPM package.
I used it a couple of times to convert FC packages to Slackware.
