texinfo possibly for info and dating from the days of needing to have an
info reader to get real documentation for many of the GNU tools?

Probably obsolete at this point.

identd is still used somewhat, mostly with IRC, but it's almost certainly
optional rather than standard.

Having a /bin/csh falls into "present on all Unix systems and likely to
provoke WTF reactions if not there." Also, I'm pretty sure that tcsh is
very comfortably the second-most-used interactive shell, way ahead of
zsh, on Linux systems.
Lots of us old-timers haven't made the leap for our interactive shell
yet. :) And it's probably more common among the average user than among
DDs, since DDs are more likely to be interested in playing with the latest
and greatest stuff.

Likewise. time is a standard Unix program.
