IMHO it is worth to keep a "showcase" (even if such a simple one) in 
core of such an important feature as the native PHP themes. It shows the 
versatility of the theme system quite well. If only phptemplate based 
themes are going to end up in core, it will be a hard time getting out 
the perception from some guys' minds that Drupal is phptemplate oriented.
