 > Why a slideshow?

 The current gallery shortcode implementation works fine, however a gallery
 with numerous images starts to break up the flow of a post on the front-

 > Isn't that plugin territory?

 It could always be plugin territory. But since the 3.5 media changes,
 there's a UI for creating multiple galleries within a post. Users don't
 have to make galleries separate from the post editing experience, which is
 what most gallery/slideshow plugins have been making up for. Since that's
 not an issue now, adding support for a slideshow in core would fit well in
 the UI.
