GuixSD is a fully free GNU distribution and it comes with the tools that
are needed to determine runtime dependencies that can then turned into a
Docker image.  Since Guix is a functional package manager and thus can
account for the full closure of a package it doesn’t require a base
image and can be the base itself.

I have to admit that I don't fully know what Guix is, but based on what you say, it would still make sense to have a base (Guix, in this case) that other containers base themselves on. That way the storage can be shared between containers.
