Well, in C there is and I like that distinction: the runtime handles everything that doesn't need a #include, and that is:

- formatting and passing the arguments to main()
- replacing some constants (IIRC) at runtime, especially those with sizeof(array)

While the distinction between druntime and phobos is one thing (and you are right that it was about Tango vs Phobos, because otherwise Tango was reimplementing those parts in a Phobos-incompatible ways, which prevented programs to use both), now the discussion is more about (c-like) runtime vs (c-like) standard library.
