By that token, we should probably include everyone that works on
every bit of technology that the application relies on. That's just
not feasible.

You're taking an exaggerated position, claiming it's obviously
overkill, and then tossing out the entire argument.

Clearly :)

I would think the GNOME designers would want the core apps to be
models for other application developers.  It seems strange to me that
the core apps would then carve out exceptions for themselves.

I don't think that core apps should be built like external ones,
otherwise there'd be no point in making them core.

On top of my head, the differences are:
- they are shipped with the OS, not separately
- they use generic names, not branded ones
- they integrated with the OS in ways that stand-alone apps might not be
able to (I'm thinking of every "sharing" app we use in the Sharing
- they follow the GNOME release process

So I don't think the "core apps are models to third-party apps" argument
