you've got that wrong. Chrome is based on Chromium.

ChromeOS and Chrome are run as semi-separate projects. the former uses Gentoo
to provide a slim/secure Linux base in which you run Chrome.

you need to think bigger. Chromium supports joystick inputs (which come and
go) for playing games in the browser, so udev makes sense. it also supports
looking up your location, detecting when the network comes up/down, and
kde/gnome password stores, all of which require dbus. and with nacl, you're
loading ELF objects, so libelf makes sense.
really though, if you don't like Chrome, then don't use it. many people do.
