That doesn't mean it has to sit in core while it is not.
I'm seriously hoping that AbiWord and Gnumeric someday will be the  
default office apps in core, OOo imho is bloated and has a code base  
that is just too big, I personally think OOo was a poor choice to  
default to - and had the resources by various distros been put into  
AbiWord/Gnumeric that were put into OOo - they would absolutely rock  
even more than they already do.

But while OOo is what is being pushed and defaulted to, AbiWord/ 
Gnumeric need to live in Extras so that they do not add to what a user  
who sticks with defaults has to download.
