What is the purpose of android.process.acore?

I see many, many questions about acore-related error messages and how to fix them, but not really anything about what the process is in the first place. All I was able to find is this thread at xda-developers which suggests it has something to do with Contacts storage. Can anyone provide a more detailed explanation?

    android.process.acore seems to be a process specifically defined for an activity of ContactsProvider/ContactsStorage app. See what is android:process and the answers for Usage of android:process. Overall, it's a process name defined by an app for its component. That's all I needed to know.

    For me it belonged to /system/app/ContactsProvider.apk
