The core is substantially smaller than the one with templates and
SPARQL. There appear to be implementors who will implement core (it's
possible that ShEx implementations are in fact SHACL core
implementations, modulo parsing the structures out of the RDF), who
are unlikely to implement SPIN templates or SPARQL. Defining a SPARQL
templates module would pave the way for the modularity required to
define an e.g. javascript module or someOrg:ourSpecialModule.
