Well, based on Michael's original definition here, is it an essential
app without a popular drop-in replacement that seems to be unable to
be properly confined as a Flatpak?

Can it be confined by Flatpak?

I think that it is an essential app. Users expect to be able to take
screenshots and we should not expect users to use keyboard shortcuts
instead of regular apps. Personally, I don't recall hearing anyone
complain about gnome-screenshot being pre-installed and unremovable.

The list seems to be missing several core system utilities:
- Archive Manager

I'm not sure this one should be nowadays, we have the common use case covered in Nautilus already (except dammed rar5 in some corner cases, but I believe rar is not so used anymore).
- Disks
- Disk Usage Analyzer
- Logs
- System Monitor
