[CentOS] mdadm exim mysql

I installed a CentOS-5 core OS (using --nobase in my kickstart).

For some reason, it included mysql-5.0.22.

When I do "yum remove mysql", it says it will also remove 
exim and mdadm for dependencies.

I don't care that exim will be removed, but I need mdadm as 
I'm doing software RAID.

But why are these even related? When I do:
rpm -q --requires mysql
neither exim or mdadm is listed as being a requirement.
