You may want to include what apk each on the list is.

Ex: picotts.apk removes all Text-To-Speech abilities, including "speaking texts" (which makes usage while driving in-car problematic) and videos.apk removes the stock Video Player.

There are various others, but removing one can have consequences on others, or removal of an "ability" that some may wish to keep.

However the stock merit rom does come with two tts apps installed, pico tts and tts service, I deleted pico and kept tts service on SF 2.0, and voice nav works great. Although I do wish she had an english accent... sexy...

It seems that as long as you have one of them youll be okay.

There is more that can be removed depending on what you want from the phone.

I had apps broken before root so until trying custom ROMs I didn't know what some of theses apps were.booksphone.apk
calendar.apk
calendar.odex            I still use the stock calender.
calendarprovider.apk
calendarprovider.odex

documentstogoviewers.apk       I thought this was a junky file explorer that most will want to replace with one that has root.

facebook-1.6.1.apk           Hopefully this one is a given.

filer.apk       I thought this was a junky file explorer that most will want to replace with one that has root.
filer.odex

gmail.apk         No need for two email apps & camera relies on the other one.

googlecalendarsyncadapter.apk
googlecontactsyncadapter.apk             These are still on my phone. By reading them they looked like something I want.
googlefeedback.apk
goolgepartnersetup.apk

maps.apk               I use this one a lot. I did remove street view tho.

music2.apk      Again no need to have two. Just make sure you remove the right one. If Bluetooth is on it breaks the dialler
                                                   To remove the other.

orkut.apk       I think this is some kind of chat app. If you want it you probably know what it is but can be
                                                                    downloaded from Play.
picotts.apk
picotts.odex            This was broke on mine preroot.

plusone.apk           I don't remember.

protips.apk
protips.odex            I think this is that annoying android on home the first time you start.

sdlog.apk
sdlog.odex            I don't remember this ether. I must have not thought it important since I don't have it.

twitter.apk             Should be given.

videos.apk           I think this was a player.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
A few more:
Talk             A chat app.

FCC             FCC keeps tabs on on your carrier. See if they really have services where they say they do.

Google Search      Given. I use my browser.

Voice        This was broken preroot but I have tried it from other ROMs. Nice app for voice dial or opening apps. I use
                                                                assent from play tho.

I knew there is more but that is all I can think of for now. Make a nandroid before you start pulling apps. I took two off at a time that way it wasn't hard to figure out which one caused the problems.
