Well, what makes Fedora different is its a fast moving, cutting edge
distribution. Fedora is more than happy to make drastic changes in a
short amount of time, stomping over numerous core packages. This is what
makes it different. (especially from Debian...)
Perhaps the core/extras separation is the price we pay to accomplish
this development style. Perhaps eliminating the separation will just
turn Fedora into slow moving Debian.
Or maybe it won't. I really don't know.
