It does not matter what the 'default for Xfce' is. I think we have been 
through this discussion twice in the past 6 months.
We pick what is best for the user.

No it should not have any bias. It should be about usability (features, 
performance, ease of use etc) not where that app originated from.
Brasero is goo on all these -a dn getting better. Xfburn is not.

evince in KDE would be a lot weirder, it's a whole different look and 
dependency chain, and besides kpdf or okular or whatever kde has are 
good document viewers

In contrast, Xfce alternatives to GNOME apps usually suck. The core 
desktop is the only one that is worth keeping because of it's maturity 
and relative lighness. And even there, is stagnation unfortunately with
GNOME core closing the gap on the performance front.
