I don't agree. The so-called core blocks are just our default 
implementations for functionality you need in webapps. But nobody should 
be enforced to use them. So IMO it makes absolutely sense to base our 
samples on them - but making them excludable easily.

Where it is appropriate ...

Resulting from above I have no problem with it. For using Cocoon you 
just need the core. For looking at form samples you obviously need a 
form framework. Later you might switch to another form framework than 
our default CForms. Then you obviously don't want to have it included in 
the core.
