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.
