This is something that I've suggested before -- some things, like
node.module and so on, are obviously always going to be a part of the
"framework files". This meshes very well, IMO, with Robert's vision of
'targeted distributions.'

I think providing the current mix of Drupal core modules as a 'Classic
Drupal' distro, or something like that, would be a fine way to let
people keep on going as they have been. Those who want something else
can get framework + a distro, or framework + a custom mix of modules and
themes, etc.
