I agree.  This is the biggest drawback to putting things in core.  They 
get stale really fast.  Until such time that core becomes less rigid I 
don't see this as a good idea.

Not so much of an issue.  I'd like to see better install profiles such 
that the big modules are downloaded along with core instead of having to 
be downloaded alone.
