I think we are overcomplicating this. There will never be a consensus over what workbenches are more important than others...
I read again the rationale @vocx provided in this discussion, and for now concluded, that the proposal is more suited for this Wiki page:
This is where it's expected for new users to begin using FreeCAD documentation. And therefore mentioning there on what Workbench to try out first and on why. That makes the most sense to me. In addition we had this discussion in the past already. On how Start workbench could gear new users towards some workflow. Like Arch or PartDesign. That is more than it does now. Going beyond that is possible. I guess. But at the same time harder to find rationale for it.
The purpose is not to define which workbench is more "important", as yorik said in this comment. That is the wrong idea, the purpose is to better organize the set of workbenches that are currently available, so as to guide new and experienced users alike (experienced in the sense they have used other CAD systems, but are just starting with FreeCAD).
Now, ideally this should be done in the software itself, but if people oppose, and they would like to modify only the wiki, that's at least a step in the right direction, in my opinion. So, modifying the wiki would be possible, however, I also warn against presenting something in the wiki that doesn't truly match the software. I wouldn't like to have a "core" in the wiki, but no "core" in the software; that just might be confusing as well.
