If anything I'd say the other way would be better. Not to start a
flame war over modules but vote_up_down seemed much more useful when I
was evaluating voting modules last month.

I'd say split storylink out into it's own project if it turns out it's
useful outside of the module that spawned it. I just did that with the
audio module's audio_itunes sub-module. It's now the iTunes module
(http://drupal.org/project/itunes) and will hopefully prevent other
media modules from having to re-implement iTunes feed support.
