Comment (by nacin):

 `ext-mysql` is still required by core. It should be listed in `require`
 until core no longer requires it out of the box. The deprecation was done
 for political reasons (which I encouraged), not because it fails to work.

 > Myself I am hesitant to suggest extensions that are functionally
 irrelevant. For example HTTP API works with or without curl, suggestion to
 have it is not important information. Extension listed should be those,
 without which functionality starts to fail. For example I don't think WP
 has extension-less image resize, right?

 Well, the HTTP API continues to prefer `curl`. There *are* some things
 that cannot be done via streams/sockets as well. So it should definitely
 be suggested.

 We do "extension-less image resize" using browser resize. So, no. `ext-gd`
 and `ext-imagick` should also both be suggested.

 > Also I think it should also be limited to extensions core actually uses
 natively - object caches, alternate DB drivers and such are implemented by

 I agree.
