FWIW:
I just did the same and removed the following apps:

Bing
Books
City ID (It's a pay service)
Guided tours
Mobile IM
My Verizon Mobile (Never worked anyway, see note below)
NFL Mobile
Skype Mobile
Slacker
Social Beat
VCast Apps
VCast Music
VCast Tones
VCast Videos
Voice Control VSuite (see note below)
Voicemail 1.0 (I didnt want to pay for VVM, and this app just slows you down if you want to use regular VM)
VZ Navigator

I also removed GMail. I run my GMail account via the regular EMail app that I use for my ISP EMail account. I never understood why They put two e-mail apps on these things.

Note: The only problems so far are hitting the VM or Speech buttons in the dialer cause the dialer to force close. This can be cured with a different dialer app from the Market.

I installed a different launcher as well and that got rid of that stupid snap-out menu and fixed the hard "search" button so it now works with Google.....after loading Google Search.

The phone is much faster, and boots much faster.
It boots so fast...... the last part of the boot process, the Verizon Wireless logo with the red splash, only shows for about 1/2 a second....when it shows at all.
