What does that even mean?  Is dired.el core?  Is subr.el?  simple.el?

If what you mean is something that is loaded automatically, from
the outset, then the question is simple: If such functions should
be available from the outset then load them from the outset (i.e.,
add them to the "core").

What I think we do not need is to proliferate additional functions
that do pretty much the same thing.  We don't need different levels
of a function that performs a "reduce" operation, one "in the core"
and another in a library not loaded by default.

Seems like a no-brainer, to me.  (Just one opinion.)
