In a way you could look at it as a Fork of some core libs, Alternativly,  
You could look at it as a Repository of common code which is useable by  
all the *Press applications.

Ideally, WordPress wouldnt include these files itself, rather, They'd be  
part of Backpress only and included much like is done with the other  
applications. Originally that was planned, but theres always been more  
important things to get done than rip out the heart of WordPress and  
stitch in an Exact replica..

I personally see WP 3.0 as a good time to finally do that, Due to the  
changes that are probably going to be made during the WPMU Merge..
