What do you think "core adoption" means?  Surely not that anything
associated with PGXN would be in the core distro.

This argument ignores what I think is the real technical reason for
keeping contrib, which is to have a set of close-at-hand test cases
for extension and hook mechanisms.  Certainly, not every one of the
existing contrib modules is especially useful for that purpose, but
quite a few of them are.
