Sounds like a good sentence for an ELPA policy. :)

Agility. What is appropriate. Knowing when a thing goes into core, and when in

Org is an application, it's not infrastructure; the same with Gnus. *Parts* of
Gnus might rightly be considered infrastructure, but the whole of Gnus just
doesn't belong there. Parts of CEDET probably do belong in Emacs core, but as
an application, I don't think the whole of it does.

Since we don't have an agreed upon basis by which to draw such lines, we're
both talking about what we feel is right. Let's agree to revisit after having
the ELPA discussion.
