I can think of a gazillion things that we could ship and prevent access to 
with .htaccess :) The fact that we can hide it, is not the reason for 
shipping them.

In the past, Drupal was very developers aimed. Simply bacause all users were 
developers. At that time it was usefull to ship with some handy developers 

Now that we have better tools available, and more diverse, the only reason, 
AFAIK is because no-one stood up and really made an effort for removing them. 
Its far easier to simply whip with themp, then to go trough all the hassle of 
getting them out. So, I would say, its mostly 'lack of interestest' (call it 
lack of itch) that is reason for keeping them there.

And also: everyone who can use these tools, can find them in contrib too, 
people being able to run a code style script (let alone know the meaning/use 
of it) know how to find Cool Stuff in contribs etc.
