At the moment, it's not possible to run a basic arch installation with "pacstrap /mnt base" with the extra repository disabled, because the core repository is not self-contained, i. e. some of the packages in the core repository have got dependencies in the extra repository.
In the "base"-case this comes down to the following four packages that are pulled in:

~> for package in `pactree -u base`; do pacinfo --short $package | grep "extra/"; done
extra/libcroco 0.6.13-1 [installed]
extra/libxml2 2.9.9-3 [installed]
extra/libnfnetlink 1.0.1-3 [installed]
extra/libnetfilter_conntrack 1.0.7-1 [installed]

These depend on core packages only, so having them in core would allow for an installation as mentioned above.
This task depends upon
