Why is my Nexus 4 filled with bloatware?

For all the talk about Nexus devices being bloatware-free, I have about 5 apps which I can't get rid of in my Nexus:

  1. Currents
  2. Play Books
  3. Play Magazines
  4. Play Movies & TV
  5. Earth

And I'm sure others can find more apps which they don't have any use for. I know I can disable and hide them, but still that leaves me with a bad taste in the mouth.
