GIMP removed from Ubuntu Lucid Lynx

I was going a Google search of what all applications the new Ubuntu will carry. Lots of modifications/ new splash screens etc. But I was surprise to see one post saying that GIMP is to be removed from the default installation. I went through the Ubuntu wiki and they had already had a post regarding this, some months ago,

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/RemoveGimp

The GIMP community also agrees to it, saying that the vision of GIMP is to be a high-end/expert application and Ubuntu removing it from the default installation shows the respect it deserves.
