To me this is easy: The core/extra/unstable repositories are maintained
by the smaller group of Archlinux Developers, the community repository
is maintained by the larger and less strictly controlled group of
Trusted Users.

This is the only disctinction IMO. Everything we don't want to maintain
due to lack of time and manpower will be handled by the TUs, who can
grow their numbers easily.
