In absolute-linux which is a rather slim distro they have managed to incorpoarte k3b only of kde on an icewmaker desktop. Works well. I f I need it for music CD burning I switch to there from VL where otherwise I am happily using cdroast.

I have been using k3b on 5.8 Standard since it was released. As I've mentioned here several times, all it needed was kdelibs.

Similarly, gnomebaker has come a long way and doesn't require a lot of Gnome to be installed.  I'm not sure if it would add to deps at all since Gnumeric, AbiWord, etc... are already included in VL Standard.  Wolvix (including Cub) and AliXe are examples of lightweight Slack-based distros using gnomebaker and Xfce but installing as little Gnome as possible.  I've been very impressed with gnomebaker in these distros.

If we are gonna consider heavy hitters like K3b and Gnomebaker for VL Std, I think we should throw in Brasero as well. At least Brasero has the stated goal of keeping it simple. Alternatively, Grafburn does almost everything that Graveman did, and does it better. Plus Grafburn is still being actively developed by Nathan F.
