I don't know what is the solution (I am a power user, non a developer)
but I still think that removing GDM by simply removing any WM group is
not the same that removing other packages, as when you logout and login
again your system is pretty unusable for a standard user.
Especially after Gnome3 introduction many want to try alternative WM and
GDM is blown away when they remove any WM

My two cents.
