Historically, and perhaps still? the main difference was who had write 
access. Anyone could add files to contrib just by submitting a CD via a 
web form, whereas the core directory needed CVS (Now svn) write access.

perhaps, a bit, but Cool uris's don't change

which limits how much cleanup you can do. One thing that I had thought 
we should set up is that the short
version should use some smarter logic to redirect to whatever file 
drrectory is being used at the back, whetheer cdfiles2/cd or contrib/cd 
or somewhere else.
