If android were acquired today, would the really be brought in to the google core?

I think it has to do with how tight Google Services and Android are. Android is less of an operating system and more of a Google services device in your pocket (mail/docs/photos/etc)

Sure, but would it have become that if it had been segregated in 'A' after acquisition? Would it have "graduated" into Google proper at some point?

I think they are moving away from grading "into" Google. I get the vibe they want most serious non-related stuff out on its own.
