Again, a real "Content Management System" manages content. It in
*no way* dictates what's done with that content as far as output. It
may (and usually will) offer role-based access, routing and review
mechanisms, revision control, etc.

I suspect your perspective would be different if you had experience
with something like Documentum or Interwoven Teamsite.

The confusion arises from people labeling anything with a text input
field a "CMS".  You're entitled to your opinion of Wordpress, etc., but
calling a chihuahua a bear doesn't make it so :-)
