`emerge --depclean` after fresh gnome stage 3 install wants to remove liberation-fonts?

Question

Long time no post!  Got a new machine and installing Funtoo with the gnome stage 3 for Zen2.  All came out well, however, I have a question about the results of `emerge --depclean -a`.  One of the packages it wants to remove is liberation-fonts.  Strange, because that's what Gnome Terminal is set to use by default.  Makes me wonder how many of the other 20 odd programs slated to be removed will impact the system.

I also did a test install on another machine with the gnome haswell stage 3.  Got it installed.  Before running `ego sync` and `emerge world -uDNav` I ran `emerge --depclean -a`.  The results were nearly identical.  Here's the output of the `emerge --depclean -a` on the fully installed amd64 Zen2 gnome stage3 system:

Should I let it rip, or is something amiss here?

tesla ~ # emerge --depclean -a

 * Always study the list of packages to be cleaned for any obvious
 * mistakes. Packages that are part of the world set will always
 * be kept.  They can be manually added to this set with
 * `emerge --noreplace <atom>`.  Packages that are listed in
 * package.provided (see portage(5)) will be removed by
 * depclean, even if they are part of the world set.
 * 
 * As a safety measure, depclean will not remove any packages
 * unless *all* required dependencies have been resolved.  As a
 * consequence of this, it often becomes necessary to run 
 * `emerge --update --newuse --deep @world` prior to depclean.

Calculating dependencies... done!

Would you like to unmerge these packages? [Yes/No]
