See below my answer on that. To put it short: your wish will come true.

If it was my decision , for the minimal.iso I would tweak anaconda to do
     echo "%_excludedocs 0" >> /etc/rpm/macros
prior to install

All the packages that you mentioned and quite a few more will be 
included in a CD image which should appear once I manage to make more 
free time than I had during the last 6-8 weeks. All the bits needed to 
complete the work for this new iso are in my yard but several unrelated 
events happened at once and required most of my time since end of June.
