OTOH, I should think that it would be perfectly OK if some "optional 
modules" happened to include real Block(s).  My proposed nomenclature 
change isn't meant to imply some mutually exclusive thing, nor should 
the structure of our sources or artifacts.

For instance, maybe Portal, Lucene, and/or Captcha are things that 
would work well as Blocks.  I don't really know enough yet to say for 
sure.  Other things like CForms don't really provide "services", they 
are more like infrastructure things.
