As the developer of Dracula, I intentionally put most of my code in
Planet so I can release it with Dracula and (where possible) maintain
compatibility with older versions of PLT Scheme.  There is nothing in
theory keeping me from putting some of this stuff in the core, except
that it would put one half of my code on a different release cycle
from the other half, which is problematic.
