I disagree with both of these positions. Revisioning has little to do 
with types of nodes; it has to do with administration of nodes and must 
be at the lowest level in order to work. If you try to move it, you'll 
just break it and we'll lose very important features.

Likewise with titles, I'm not sure that it's likely to be possible to 
administer any kind of node system without titles of some flavor.

I disagree that the node system should change that much.
