Conversely, what is the process to remove a package from core R? It seems
to me some (many?) of the packages included are there more out of
historical accident rather than any technical need to be in the core
distribution. Having them as a core (or recommended) package makes them
harder update independently to R and makes testing, development and
contribution more cumbersome.
