Default Cleaning up /preload partition

I'm on stock JB.
I noticed the /preload/symlink/system/app/ is full of APKs, some of them I removed from my system partition as I don't need them.
Is it safe to remove all APKs from /preload ?
What's it used for anyway? They are not really symlinks as the path would suggest.

You can always flash stock Firmware with Odin and get all those back. That what yuo removed from system partition was shortcuts to the apps in preload partition (not all of it, but the ones that are present in preload).
