Acquia is not the Drupal project, and there is no reason the project "must" follow where Acquia leads.  Most dev shops have their own "standard suite" of modules, and while nearly all probably have Views and CCK, I suspect there's a lot of divergence after that.

There will likely be a benefit from Acquia having a list of "we will put effort into these" modules, but that does not imply anything official for the project itself, nor should it.
