Is there a disadvantage to putting it in core?  I'd say if I was going
to install the lts kernel on a server, It'd be annoying to have to
install using kernel26 then install lts from extra later.  Having it
available on the install CD would be useful.  Not to mention core
explicitly requires signoffs which solves that problem also.
