CCK and views have been living in contrib for many many years.
And much longer than either triggers / open id did.
And they have many more users than than either workflow or open id did  
in contrib.
And even then triggers was mostly a rewrite from workflow (with very  
different functionality), so i am not sure it could be considered as  
having gestated in contrib.

I would like any contrib module to be able to do things like provide  
default views and default content types.
