syscrusher: I was simply giving an example - as I said more thorough 
usability testing will give these answers. If "content" is the way to go 
then that's great.

victor: As for having default content types I think there are two levels 
- Drupal as a system/framework should not assume anything but a fresh 
installation should give a user(especially a new one that is probably 
just exploring the system) some types to work with, even if it is just a 
way to illustrate that different types that are possible. If the first 
thing a new user has to do is actually create a content type then we 
lost them right there...
