You say you could hide it, and it seems to me that this is in effect a
very easily implementable idea(assuming that we ignore the ignore
principle), that I think has two possible routes.
1. The removal of the post write/management screens. This would be an
option, like the removal of the visual editor. However, this would
involve point two.
2. The use of theme templates to not use all the post listing functions.
This then requires specific themes designed for the purpose.
For a site i run that is cms, i still use posts to make announcements,
so there are different needs in a cms. just my opinions.
