I've a Drupal 4.7 site in beta right now where every node is defined by CCK.  
The page and story modules are both disabled.  If we were "forced" to keep 
the page node type around, that would clutter up the UI with stuff that we 
don't want.  

+1 for using page and story to show how you can have different node types do 
different things, like disabling comments on page by default.  -1 for taking 
away the user's ability to reconfigure the site however he wants.

"If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of 
exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an idea, 
which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps it to 
himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into the possession 
of every one, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself of it."  -- Thomas
