How about doing with CCK what was done with the Forms API...
commit CCK to core, freeze all the other features and then
make CCK work properly.

That way the feature set for 4.8 is known and people can
begin porting their contrib modules, none of which will
rely on CCK (although some may benefit from it in the
long term).

And since CCK will take a couple of extra months to fully
debug, there will be sufficient time to port modules.

CCK will get a lot more eyeballs and hands if it's in core.

And we'll have one more killer feature in the 4.8 release.
