Feature freeze, and the need to break inheritance from FC5.  Helix was still 
being pulled in from FC5 and we needed to break that before Test2, so we 
needed to drop it from core so that it could be picked up in Extras.  Extras 
doesn't have a freeze like Core does and if somebody was that interested, 
they could have gotten it in and out before Test2 released.

We've been making noise about removing Helix since before FC5, this isn't a 
surprise.
