This thread reminds me of a recent post I made "Page vs Story - Again", 
I'm sure you all remember.  I still contend that Story should be off on 
a new install to prevent the newbie not understanding the difference 
from needing to do a conversion in the first place.  Statements were 
made that it had to do with workflow but a newbie doesn't realize how 
Drupal workflow works upon start.  And worse, story isn't even listed 
in the modules for V5 to be turned on or off even though the node type 
can be deleted.  Ok, I know about the dynamic "Content Types" and I 
understand the reasoning behind it and the fact that modules need to 
create a content type but upon installation there isn't an example in 
V5 of a module that creates a content type.  IMO, Story needs to be a 
module inactive by default that users can activate once they learn what 
it can do for them.
