It is a bug when so many packages depend on something like avahi. It is
absolutely leaf package, good to have, but almost everyone can live without

And, it may be YaST software management bug, or not implemented feature, if
avahi is not hard requirement, but treated as such.

The problem is that "libavahi.." requirs avahi the daemon.

What are you basing this assertion on? 11.1 install:

jpr@linux-u9xk:~> sudo zypper rm avahi
Loading repository data...
Reading installed packages...
Resolving package dependencies...

The following packages are going to be REMOVED:
avahi banshee-1 banshee-1-backend-engine-gstreamer
banshee-1-backend-platform-gnome banshee-1-backend-platform-unix
banshee-1-extensions-default mono-zeroconf mono-zeroconf-provider-avahi

So it removes banshee avachi and nss-mdns (zeroconf dns resolution).
