On hosts that do not have a requirement for perl, or python (i.e. compliant with the minimal-build concept) .... how would that remediation action occur were it coded in perl/python (or other language/tool)?  I believe it is reasonable to assume bash and coreutils will be there (please correct me if I am wrong) for a minimal build.

Regarding the selection of fix languages, I don't think that you need to
use the only one language exclusively. If some goal is easier to achieve
with python than in bash, go for it. OpenSCAP will handle it correctly.
Python fix will not be issued unless the python interpreter is available.
