My personal take would be any apps neccesary to view major file types
should be in core, and other important apps should be in fifth toe

So core would include

gedit - text
eog - most images
ggv - pdf/postscript
fileroller - archives

?? - borderline

galeon (though I err on including into core esp with html viewer)

fifth toe

the gimp
