[rocketmouse at archlinux ~]$ pactree -sr thunar
[rocketmouse at archlinux ~]$ pacman -Qi xfdesktop | grep Depends
Depends On     : libxfce4ui  thunar  garcon  hicolor-icon-theme  libwnck

I don't use Xfce4 anymore, sometimes I'm using JWM and sometimes I'm
using openbox. With JWM and openbox I'm using several Xfce4
applications. IOW I easily can replace the applications I want to use.

Regarding to the above hard dependency of xfdesktop, including
xfdesktop-settings, it likely depends on what you need and what you
don't need and what exactly you want to replace, while running Xfce4.
