Comment (by Krejzi):

 The X Window System dependency might be "a lie" for most of the packages.
 It might be true for a window manager or a desktop, but for most packages
 you only need it to satisfy build time dep for something, you wouldn't
 need to run it at all. Stick to build deps, one might not want to build
 entire X Window System to build GTK+3, lets say, which can also run on
 Wayland (you need X libraries for Mesa only, not the XServer and such).
