Packages which require tight integration with the core should stay.
Technically, I think at least these factors matter:

* high degree of overlap in developer community
* high degree of overlap in user community
* high degree of internal coupling with core, especially on new features
* many components and libraries shared with core
* bug reports against the package often are actually against the core,
  or require core changes to be resolved

I think Gnus matches those.
