Overstocking a 10?

Alright guys, this is a separate aquarium from the one I'm putting by my home theater system, lol. I have a 10 gallon tank in my room, I was thinking maybe 4-5 neon tetras, or guppies, 2-3 corys of some sort, and either a betta or a dwarf gourami for the centerpiece? Would that be overstocked?

When I first started I had a very similar tank

6 Neon Tetra (My favorite. :D)
3 Aenus Corydoras
1 Betta

It's not overstocked, but you will find that many here don't approve of tanks that mix Tetras and Betta fish.

Why is that? What about tetras and gouramis? I know they're related to the bettas.
