[development] Remove q=node from required modules

I can't remember the last time I actually used /node. It's a great default
for a fresh install and new users, but quickly becomes a problem for
established users. I won't deny that a tiny contrib module would solve
things, but it strikes me as the wrong solution. If I have to install a
module that only does one menu_alter, then it really starts to sound like
I'm having to work around a flaw instead of extending functionality. I don't
think any of us want /node removed. We'd just rather have the ability to
disable it, like we can with suggested menu items.
