agreed; I added all 3 to ubuntu-desktop packageset for x/b/f/g/h

I added this to ubuntu-desktop packageset for x/b/f/g/h also.

IIUC, and rafaeldtinoco can correct me here, the desktop-core
packageset needs to be moved into (or merged with) the ubuntu-desktop
packageset, and it only currently exists because of the
ubuntustudio-desktop-core metapackage, which needs to be cleaned up.
Though I may have misunderstood the situation. But in any case, ibus
is now part of ubuntu-desktop packageset as well.
