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).

Right. And because there could be rpm dependencies between packages from the "old" Extras on the "old" Core, that might not be satisfied by the "new" Core post-upgrade, there ought to be a really convenient way to upgrade Extras at the same time, either by Anaconda itself or by firstboot-after-upgrade.
