This is fairly subjective. I personally think we should only be
mentioning the major DE's (GNOME,KDE & maybe XFCE) as complete
solutions. The aim should be to inform of what is useful to a big
majority, not to cover everything out there.

And make it even more of an information overloaded document ? Again it
should cover the basics. Individual applications should not need to be
described, they usually need no additional configuration (the ones you
mention here shouldn't at least) and are fairly straightforward anyway.
Besides that they usually come with some form of GUI help, a more
important task i think would be to make the available help consistently
accessible (like Yelp tries to do in gnome).
A list of suggestions in the spirit of 'well you got your basic desktop
now, check these out if you want more' i could live with. But this would
again be a subjective list and probably quickly out of date.
