If the "core" set of features were at all useful in practice then I 
would think about this, but it is not, so we'd just end up arranging 
the tables for marketing purposes instead of information purposes.  Ten 
years ago this would have been equivalent to making a separate section 
for SQL 92 Entry level and rejoicing upon completion, while realizing 
that a real-life DBMS needs at least Intermediate level.
