I see no contradiction: You simply tell that in your opinion[1], when 
Fructose is packaged then there are no longer too few activities. :-)

I won't stop Luke from packaging the Help activity which I believe isn't

(heck, 0.82 might not even be supported any longer by Sugarlabs...)

[1] Sugarlabs can describe what they consider "core" or "complete", but 
cannot dictate limits on how much distros _may_ package.
