Drupal is both a framework and a CMS.  The framework itself is geared  
toward managing dynamic content.  The parts of Drupal that make it a  
traditional CMS must remain with the core of Drupal because that gives  
Drupal better definition.

Since the framework is geared toward a CMS how can we separate all of  
those pieces.  There may be some modules dwelling in core that may be  
moved but certainly not those that pertain to a minimal CMS.
