Very usefull for core, indeed!

However, if the itch is really itchy, you might want to look at microcontent. 
Microcontent is a node type that becomes a block.
I have done a lot of work on it lately that will trickle into the main trunk 
soon, amongs others the ability to add a microcontent block to any amount of 
It also features little 'minitabs', edit links that appear if you hover the 
block. the latest version uses degrading javascript to achieve this, as 
opposed to CSS that won't work in IE. 
For a client I will add the ability to assign views to a microcontent in the 
next week.
With microcontent you never need the /admin/build/blocks interface.
