I'm going to have to agree with Swelt that you are approaching this in the wrong direction. You're starting with a list of addons and discussing what they do for you. Rather than starting with a list of needs to be fulfilled.
For example, healers in particular but any class with the ability to cleanse debuffs will likely want UI customizations to assist with the process of cleansing in order to make it more efficient in these three areas. One, identifying who has a debuff that can be cleansed. Two, identifying what the debuff is to avoid unnecessary cleansing (such as cleansing of thunderclap, short duration minimal impact debuff). Finally, casting your ability which will cleanse the debuff if necessary.
I could say "get Decursive if you're a healer". Or I can discuss in depth what the need is and how an addons like it can assist with streamlining the process.
When you go and list off unit frames... there is always one more. What if a tank wants to use ag_unitFrames. Too bad, it's not listed here. What if they prefer a heads up display mode instead of traditional unit frames? Too bad, it's not listed here. There are a ton of addons that serve the function of modifying your unit frame display. Listing them all is worthless. Understanding the core reasons why you may want one isn't. For a tank, knowing your current status, in particular health, is extremely important (but it's technically important information for everyone). Because it's so highly important, sticking it off in the corner of your screen isn't very effective cause it makes you look away from the center of your screen. The more important the information, the more you want it to be centralized so there is less eye movement required when looking at what your character is standing in, what your health is at and your action bars. Instead of having your eyes jumping all over the place, by putting this information more centralized, your eyes don't have to jump around as much.
When all you do is list addons, you miss out on the reason for the addons. That's what's important.
