It wasn't removed per se.  In the past (<=FC6) there was no manifest.
Whatever we had inside the RH firewall for Fedora (Core) was on the
media.  We gave no real thought as to what should be on the media and
what should be on the mirrors, we just put it all on.  This obviously
doesn't scale once we merged core and Extras, as we'd be shipping 3+
DVDs worth of packages for a release.  Instead we played around with
the idea of multiple targetted spins, like a Desktop spin, a Server
spin, a KDE spin, etc.. all with a specific package set, sharing
something of a common core.  This didn't pan out well, lots of
different opinions and ideas as to what should be in those spins, plus
lots of overlap with things like the Live images.  Instead what we did
was a "classic" spin for the installable target that hit the same usage
cases as "Core" did in the past.  F-7 was the first release using this
new method and so there are bound to be some holes in the manifest.  It
just takes folks like you noticing missing functionality that we feel
strongly about having on the media that everybody downloads.
