[development] Modules for Core

Again, though, the issue is that forums are one feature of one kind of
community. I've set up almost a dozen drupal sites and only three used
forums. Six used blogging features, four included content aggregation.
Ten needed the links.module APIs.
This all comes back to the question we've talked about before: what is
'core'? I think that focusing on APIs, infrastructure, and toolkits in
'core' is the best bet. Repackaging the current lineup of 'core' modules
as a Drupal install profile, perhaps a 'turnkey web community', is the
approach we need to move towards.
Obviously, just my $.02.

I'm fine with seeing forum.module and aggregator.module being removed

I disagree with removing the forum.module. Drupal's slogan is "community
plumbing" which actually implies that you can create a community site
(WITH a forum) out of the box.
