I am not counting on core for much at the moment. I am not a member, but I have a few friends that are. From what I see core is years away from competing with regular LW in many areas. I will consider buying core when it no longer needs to be bundled with regular LW.

I can see your reasons, but i see those kinda implementations more possible for CORE than for current Lw. I don't think developers want to code the same things twice ? Better to implement them within a new environment than into a old one which doesn't easily allow those features...
