Sure, but I think the benefits will outweigh that minor drawback. 
There aren't many projects these days that don't have third-party
dependencies.

It's a good point that the ADK code would be more critical.  Its
committer list should probably be kept fairly short because of this. 
However, once it got past an initial revision, it would likely stay
much more stable than the projects that build on top of it.  As a
result, it should also release much less often than those other
projects.  This has been our experience using this kind of model at
ChannelPoint.

Yep.  But let's not bite off so much at once that it's intractable.
