Yes, that's right.

I think that the issue is implied connotation of "contrib".

We were thinking of contrib as "interesting stuff that users might want 
to re-use/share but not core to zookeeper, we'll carry it around so that 
users know where to find it, if it gets broken and no one fixes it it 
won't hold up the release"

If I understand correctly you are saying there is no middle ground.
