There are still a wide array of very useful apps out there which require
core fonts.  7.5 is nowhere near far enough in the future to gut the
list of fonts included in the core release.

Prune the list, perhaps, but don't gut it.

I also question the removal of xmag and xfd.  xfd is still the best way
to see what a given fontconfig pattern will display, and xmag remains
the best choice for getting a magnified view of a chunk of the dpy.
