It's a good explanation, but there is something to research more - i often heard that some of the apps ended up on the system partition for simply practical reason - it's easier to put them there while building the ROM then to the /data/ . I've heard this reason couple of times, but it's the best to verify it with people who actually build ROMs.

Re: Chapter 1. WHY CAN'T I UNINSTALL SOME APPS?
That may be true, but I don't think we need to get into that in the callout here. We just want people to understand that they are on the system image and that's the deal. Going further into why they are on the system image is sort of a side-path.
