Getting Pie-in-the-sky here, but if RM can't be integrated into core,
which I think is reasonable since it's overhead that most people don't
need, it would be great if it was treated as a kind of crucial plugin
that will be stewarded by Automattic if the great im-web-gefunden guy
ever falls behind (rather than waiting months as we did the last time
it was abandoned). The cap system implies the plugin, and people who
use it depend on it, just like people depend on Akismet.
