But to what end? Xubuntu is a complete operating system "experience" 
complete with tools for most day to day tasks out of the box. If it were 
to ship with just a core system + xfce it wouldn't be much in line with 
the rest of the Ubuntu based systems.

With that said.. I've removed half the default apps and have switched to 
alternatives in almost every care, but apt-get --purge autoremove foo 
does a good job so I hardly notice..
