We have only minimal drivers and most dlls are needed, too. YOu could just skip some apps like the solitaire game and rapps etc. YOu wont get ROS much smaller without risking drastical compatibility reduction.
ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes

freeldr.ini, any sys file to be sure it runs on some pcs at least. Same goes for any inf files and most ttf (DejaVu most likely not), ntoskrnl, the right nls file for the needed languages, bootvid.dll, advapi32.dll, comctl32.dll, comdlg32.dll, crt.dll, csrsrv.dll, devenum.dll, devmgr.dll, explorer.exe, fontext.dll, framebuf.dll, gdi32.dll, kbd*.dll (Keyboard Layouts), kernel32.dll, lsasrv.dll, msvcrt.dll, ole*.dll, newdev.dll, ntdll.dll, rpcrt4.dll, rundll32.exe, services.exe, shdocvw.dll, shell32.dll, svchost.exe, ufat.dll, user32.dll

I just ran through the files VERY quickly and put in here what I realized to be needed, I did not check deeper, nor will I guarantee that its correct, neither taht all files here are neded. Well, now you see that its almost useless to reduce the size even more.
