The guidelines don't say "preferred Core application". They say 
"packages that are considered essential for end users". I hope that at some
point a decent yum GUI fits that bill. Yumex might not be at that point yet,
but hopefully it will be at some point.

Here's my argument for putting it there, though: this package is in Extras
and so not installed by default. If it *is* installed, is there any point in
not having it on the menu? If you're in the habit of launching things from
the command line, why not just use command-line yum?
