What is the wordpress wp-includes folder for? That is, whats the fundamental architectural purpose of it, for example why isn't it all in themes or an admin folder?

Can a plugin developer rely in it's contents? (e.g. jQuery) and for how long?

I would also like to know, who decides what goes in there and how does it get maintained as Wordpress changes, any is all this documented somewhere as a policy doc?
