GIMP was dropped also because it is not used by everyone. Only those who
really need to do some serious designing would use it. For an average user,
photo editing can be done in F-spot too. Its just like photoshop.

 If they want to slimdown the image size, they can remove

But all these are the essential ones. For most people downloading is really
out of question. They want it preinstalled and ready for use (Thats how
windows became popular :( ). And on a side note, those man pages are really
very very helpful.
