We've been doing a review of GNOME modulesets on the release team list,

it to core.

Right, makes sense.

I notice each desktop file has either NoDisplay=true or
NotShowIn=GNOME. (This is good, since we don't want the app itself to
be user visible.) But it does have an appdata file, so it appears in
GNOME Software and can be uninstalled there, even though it doesn't
show up in the overview. That is not good. Should the appdata file be
removed, or should it be blacklisted in GNOME Software? Could you
please take care of this?

I can. It's got an AppData to allow it to be installed in other
software centers, e.g. in XFCE or KDE and we're missing the API to do
something like NotShowIn in the AppStream spec.

No really... I would propose the following:
 * Add a compulsory_for_desktop=GNOME tag to the apps in question
 * Make GNOME-Software not show those compulsory apps at all, not just
disallow removals.
 * Only show a compulsory app if there is an addon ehancing it.
