Dying a slow SCOPE death

Maybe I am overthinking this but I could use some opinions.

What exactly HAS to be in your scope statement? Can I choose to only cover only "core" products and services? If I were a service provider that made available the hardware necessary to access my service, is this REQUIRED to be in my scope if I did not design it or manufacture any part of it? Can I scope myself simply as a service provider?

Bottom line is, am I REQUIRED to cover EVERYTHING the company provides or can I choose which aspects to cover.

I am NOT talking about EXCEPTIONS to the standard, simply which products and services I want to "officially" apply it to.

The scope of the QMS should be clearly defined, documented and be comprehensive and cover all products and activities your organization does.

The scope of certification, on the other hand, does not need to cover everything. You, as the registrant, can limit the scope of certification.

The two scopes are not necessarily the same.
