AFAIR the only argument in favor of that is basically a marketing one:
users perceive a feature as more real, or more supported, if it's in
core.  I don't find this argument especially compelling myself.

marketing is not always "swear-word" :) We live in real world and there are
many situations where marketing is the deciding vote. Not all are Tom Lane, who could convince customer saying there is no difference between contrib module and core feature, or that PostgreSQL is a mature
database with fts add-on, which could be installed separately (with
supersuser rights).

I think, this is a good question for the next poll on postgresql.org.
