Would that solve our other problem: that many contrib modules got
updates later, so it turns out after a stable release that certain
APIs are not complete or suitable for important contrib stuff? If we
move more of the modules which use these APIs outside of core, we go
to pure API design without validation of those APIs with real life
modules, no? While I agree some modules would be best to go, maybe
moving all is not the solution. Poll was joked to be one of the best
API validation modules (for drag and drop, AHAH, etc). While that was
a joke to some degree, it also has roots in reality.
