For posterity (although the table will certainly get mangled).

MOS references to remove options from 10.1:

EM Repository			278100.1
Oracle Workspace Manager	731576.1
Oracle Ultra Search		283292.1
Oracle Text 			280713.1
Spatial 			179472.1
Oracle interMedia 		284573.1, 329600.1
Data Mining 			297551.1
Oracle XML Database 		1292089.1
Oracle Java Packages		276554.1
JServer JAVA Virtual Machine	JVM
Oracle XDK for Java 		JVM
Expression Filter		JVM
OLAP Catalog			1060023.1, 565773.1, 1449652.1, 332351.1, 2 SRs
OLAP Analytic Workspace		OLAP

This added weeks to my upgrade from 10.1 to 11.2. Yes, some of these, like Java and XML were added back post-upgrade. OLAP by far was the worst to remove, as even the blessed scripts from Oracle Support didn't completely remove OLAP. I ended up having to fix the broken 10.1 "deinstall" myself.

I now delete the Oracle-supplied DBCA templates after install.
