A while back, I lobbied through an email to Joe to consider including James Taylor in his list of "People" who are important in Beatles history (JT was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame by Paul a couple of years ago; JT used the same record studio the Beatles did during the White Album sessions and often would sit and watch them; JT used Paul and Linda for backup vocals on one of his first albums; and JT was a close friend of John's in the 70s). 

At the time, Joe presented a pretty good counter-argument to me, but still, it seems to me that even if some people weren't absolutely central, if they had any role at all, they should be part of a list -- if not the main list, then a "side list".

Another person is Donovan.  I keep seeing mentions of Paul mentioning Donovan as a friend who helped him write one song or another.  It seems Donovan played an important role in Paul's songwriting during a certain period of the Beatles.  Surely this should count for inclusion?
