That does look odd and inconsistent. I have no idea why.  "The core libraries are a subset of the packages in the Haskell Platform, and define basic APIs that are expected to be available in any Haskell implementation"

I suggest that someone (eg Ashley) adds it to the 
listing Ashley as maintainer.

More generally, the GHC repositories page
lists several other libraries that GHC depends on, which are not listed in the Core Libraries list on the Haskell Wiki.  Eg
	utf8-string, primitive, filepath
and perhaps others (I didn't do a line-by-line comparision).

Would the core-libraries committee like to check over the list?  Thanks!
