What Bayescraft covers is a matter of tendentious definitions. I personally do not consider decision theory a necessary part of it, though it is certainly part of we're trying to capture at LessWrong.

I agree. The line between belief and decision is the line between 3 and 4 in that list and it is such a clean line that the von Neumann-Morgenstern axioms can be (and usually are) presented about a frequentist world.
