I'm all for added some more packages to base/ and use that as core. The 
list Tobias made, sounds good to me for as long as we don't need to 
distribute firmware for certain chip sets where vendors do not allow it. 
Then again, it should be simple to regenerate the ISO to include those 
by the user. Which is already implemented by the hook system in 
archboot, no?

What I don't want to have is a out of 2 make 3 or even more 
repositories. I personally don't have a problem with Sun's JRE or 
anything if OpenOffice - which is free - works best with it. Same for 
nvidia drivers and stuff. Java is a special case here because stuff may 
depend on it.

+1 for adding drivers to base/core & push the rest to extra.
