[development] D8: Merge taxonomy, book and node modules?

Can I alert you to a recent post on the forums 
(http://drupal.org/node/1035470) which I think deserves some discussion.

I wonder if indeed there is any difference between the taxonomy terms 
and nodes after D7. Often developed taxonomies with descriptions and 
examples are considered content themselves. I appreciate that if the two 
(three) modules are merged, the idea of a "concept" versus its 
"implementation"/example will disappear, therefore the relation of say a 
species animal versus my pet will not exist. But arguably, since all 
examples are somewhat different from one another (i.e. my pet's 
characteristics make it a unique living organism), one would say that 
the examples become part of the taxonomy (i.e. my pet is a 
sub-sub-species). Therefore having one taxonomy can, in fact, include 
all content.

Does this make sense?
