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_.
   4.  Provide a robust development platform for building software,
particularly open source software.

Given the above, I don't see how things like Electric Fence are
"likely candidates" for removal. I'm not saying FC must keep Electric
Fence, but "Development only" is not by itself a reason to remove it or
any package. At least, that's how I see things.
