Comment(by brantgurga):

 I support both thoughts I'm seeing. There is certainly a place for solid,
 clear, easily understood examples of plugins that are in Wordpress by
 default to demonstrate how a plugin is written and provide a basis for
 creating new plugins.
 I know I am in the same boat as ramiy though. I delete the Hello Dolly
 plugin after every installation. And code that is there, even if it's not
 an activated plugin, is a potential target for finding and exploiting
 To best address this, we need a measure of how often Hello Dolly and, to
 be fair, the Akismet plugin is actually activated.
