I think revisions are currently integral to nodes and must say.

Titles are currently required for administration purposes. Titles must 
stay, but there should probably be a good way to get programmatic titles.

The fact that we have at least 4 implementations of node profiles 
floating around contrib suggests that there is a lot of impetus in doing 

And comments are, I think, very important. There are a few critical 
forum features that require that forum replies have all the privileges 
of nodes.
