They are all in either some state of "bit rot" or with questionable functionality. Importer from WordPress is the only one that might actually be useful, especially when exporting from a WordPress network.

Will go with removing them all, including the WordPress one as the plugin page indicates how badly it is being supported. For example two weeks after WordPress 5.0 was released it still do not support content created with the block editor.

It was never a very efficient and reliable way to transfer content between sites, but now it just so bad it is better not to give the illusion people should expect it to work 100% of the time.

It seems like the import page itself is an integration/listing point for importers in to which plugins actually integrate, so just removing the core importers specified by default on the page.
