Darn fine argument.  :-)

Few of them, except node front page.  Tracker would be second most
common, probably, even though it's slow.  I'll have to admit I use the
blog module on my personal site.

Any side effects of having Views in core, e.g. loading code not used?
That's where my biggest concern would be now.
