One thing that I found lacking (and induced me to umerge it after 15 minutes 
of looking at it) is that it does not seem to have a simple menu system 
(no .desktop files, or even a menu editor). The space on the GRP cd's is 
limited and XFCE is not nearly as mature as kde and gnome. However, if you 
think it should be included, you could try to take it up with the releng 
toplevel project. They manage the cd's.
