This list of modules - does it mark a change in the "raison d'ètre" of 
I mean - if Drupal is there for some developers to "scratch their itch" 
- they must have developed one hell of an itch lately.
If some Contrib modules are so critical to release, that a release can't 
be made until they're updated  isn't that because there are sites that 
need these modules to be updated?
If they are so critical - then aren't they actually core? At least the 
way core was seen in earlier releases?
Or are they simply part of coming "distributions" that take these 
modules as part of a special purpose "package"?
And would that not mean that Drupal could indeed be released first - as 
core - (with many or few modules inside core) - and the distributions  
could follow -  with all the cool sets of modules?
I just ask.
