While not absolutely necessary, host is, sometimes, a useful diagnostic tool.
Moreover, we suggest the use of dig in our documentation.
I second this request.

I'd like to to always have a clean base system.

But there are many utilities useful for on daily basis, for example: vim, iptraf, dig, traceroute, tracepath, etc.
What about a yum group containing all this stuff? Something like "Troubleshooting utilities"?
