I just don't see gallery functionality as part of a weblog engine, any
more than I see chat, news and e-mail as part of a web browser.

I would say that that's a good argument for not building a gallery into
typo at all: it means anyone who really wants gallery functionality will
likely find the built-in functionality insufficient, so they'll end up
paying the cost in bloat, without getting any benefit.
That said, I don't object to gallery features in Typo as long as there's
an easy way to rip them out.
