Most of the Gnome applications were third party apps until they because:
- less buggy
- better translated
- used widely i.e. tested
enough to be included into Gnome desktop.
If the application is of general usefulness, but isn't part of the Gnome,
a probable reason is that it's lacking in some of these...
An application that isn't translated to a language that user understands
is a useless application i.e. bloat however "light" it might appear to its
I would keep as one acceptance criteria for an application that it's
translated at least mostly to the languages supported by rest of
the XFCE desktop.
 means also that there's more help and documentation available for users.
