running an ubuntu server without language-selector-common nor dbus

hi all, i'm looking for the leanest bloat-free secure possible ubuntu install ^^

- anybody knows what impact i should expect by trying to run an ubuntu server without dbus nor language-selector-common ( which is the only dbus reverse dep and has no reverse dep itself so i assume it is installed with the base system or tasksel )
- as a bonus, the preseed option to prevent it from being installed is welcome

i'm working on a skeleton for servers so i could not care less about breaking gnome or whatever other desktop which i do not plan on installing anyway.

i'm stuck with ubuntu so please don't suggest alternative oses or distributions

what i'm trying to figure out, is what is expected to make use of either of the above package on a server ( if at all ).
