In the absence of these functions, one has to run VACUUM just to be able to
see the freespace information; putting these functions in contrib/ is just
asking for extra work from DBAs, who IMHO are not very comfortable with
'make; make install'.

If a feature is mainstream, so should be the functions to extract
information about it.
