Good idea. I believe I remember something similar being discussed 
before. http://drupal.org/node/311893  I believe the impetus for that 
discussion was originally spurred by frustration about several contrib 
module's development not syncing with core's release cycle in the early 
days of 6.0

In my personal opinion, a goodly portion of 'core' should be moved to a 
'golden contrib' category.  But I don't pursue this soapbox, as I don't 
believe it has much support, and its easier for me to disable or remove 
those modules myself.

As for views particularly, I'd rather not see it in core and adopt a 
system like the above, however, I'd rather see it in core than see it 
remain as-is.  I think there is a ternary operand in that thought
