I guess that depends on what Fedora is being targeted for, and how 
aggressive one wants to be about slimming down the distro to fit on less 

But note that I didn't say "drop", just move to Extras. Presumably Fedora 
*Core* could switch to a bare-bones workstation install with capability 
equivalent to XP Home (which lacks an MTA), and everything else moved to 
Extras for advanced users who want server capability. And unlike XP Pro and 
Windows 2003, you still get to add all that functionality for *free*. Basic 
users can get a working installation from a magazine CD, and the rest can 
download additional content for the fancy stuff.
