There shouldn't be a noticeable difference in performance between XenApp and XenDesktop...
With XenApp you can publish a standard Windows desktop and easily add/remove the non core apps as required
....or, if licensing costs are an issue you could publish the none core apps direct from Windows via RemoteApp (so no Citrix license),
ie a combination you didn't consider could be XenDesktop and RemoteApp

In our next deployment we are going to be increasing our VDI in a box estate from 20 to 50 and moving to Windows 7 at the same time.
As far as the base OS goes all it will be is Windows 7 with Adobe Flash/Reader/Silverlight/Java/Shockwave - all the applications will then be mashed out using App-V with Office 2007 already in the local cache of the machines.
That way it closely mirrors what will soon become our normal desktop deployment strategy leaving you very little to worry about (especially considering App-V works on almost anything and creates start menus based upon the users permissions for applications and not what is locally installed).
Using App-V with both VDI and fat clients also means you don’t need to replicate application installations in two places (one for App-V on the fat clients and then again for the VDIs).
If you are interested in VDI in a box do let me know as I hope to hold a mini conference around it soon.

Take a look at that thread - lots of talk about it
also do look at RHEV VDI as it looks like a substantial saving and also performance wise is good
