There are several sample applications on SqueakSource for anyone wanting
examples.  Aside from that, the Sushi store example was often broken and not
well maintained when it was in the core.  Better no example than a broken
example, and better not to burden the core developers with things they don't
want to maintain.  

If you look at Rails right now, you'll see they've been trying to push
things out of the core and into plugins when they realize they'd included
something that didn't really belong in the core.  If everyone doesn't care
about it, it doesn't belong in the core.  Only beginners care about Sushi
store.  This is just my opinion of course, so take it with a grain of salt.
