At least the following are universal:
lsattr, chattr
/usr/sbin/filefrag (really shouldn't be in sbin)

If e2fsprogs goes non-essential I'd rather see a new package for the filesystem-indpendent parts than have random packages depending on "ext2/ext3/ext4 file system utilities" because they want chattr. (Side note: if the fs-independent programs aren't spun off to a new package, the description really should be updated to make it clear that there's stuff in there that isn't specific to ext2/3/4.)
