Sounds like a good idea to me :-)

Maybe even replace it with VLC entirely...

I think plasma-discover should be in the default installation instead.
People who want a GUI package manager can always install Apper
afterwards (I really like to keep default installations small).
Maybe add it to kde-full instead...

I would say nay ^^ - With Discover present, users can easily install
missing bits, like GIMP or Krita or even an office suite.

Definitely, Xsane looks really ancient now and Skanlite does the job
well (or even just say that people who have a scanner could install
the appropriate tool via Discover and install no scanner application).

+1 for VLC :-)
