Some ways to define core that might avoid package-by-package debate:

 - only things in the default workstation/server installs
 - only things that are included in Red Hat Enterprise Linux
   (don't know if this is sensible, but it might be)

I do agree with the person who suggested keeping Core as-is until Extras
is really just as good as Core (which means same repository, bug
tracker, etc. for Extras as Core).
