How about we don't get caught up the text book imagery of the word
'core' . I can do you one better and quote the textbook definition of
the word 'fedora'.. and then cry about how fedora core isn't actually
the central and often foundational part of a man's wide brimmed HAT.
'Core' like 'Fedora' is just a silly name.   Instead of a dictionary,
i refer you instead to the objective list spelled out so far for the

Objectives of Fedora Core:
   1. Create a COMPLETE general-purpose operating system with
capabilities equivalent to competing operating systems, built for and
by a community — those who not only consume, but also produce for the
good of other community members
