A C library is something that could be considered; perhaps even graphics if the relevant developers wanted to do that. But office suites are not really eligible; there are limits to what should go into the mainline.

Another important category is programs whose function is to control or analzye a Linux kernel. E.g. procps, schedutils, mount.

procps, schedutils, mount

Wouldn't the use of these imply that they count as being 'tied to the kernel' as suggested earlier on in the paragraph?

Right, that was my point. The article suggests things tied to the kernel could be distributed with it and gives examples of things that may or may not be tied enough to the kernel to warrant inclusion. But it omitted one important category of things tied to the kernel.
