We do, it's called "Ubuntu Server" ;)

The Ubuntu Core OS snap should include, with very few deltas each of
which should be documented and explained, the same set of things as a
vanilla Ubuntu Server image on AWS or GCE, or on your server if you just
install Ubuntu Server with no extra packages. I think we've wandered
around and about a bit for no good reason, with individuals making
arbitrary decisions to delta that; but for all of our users sanity
please just put the same bits down everywhere. Bluntly, unless Dustin or
I ack a delta, it shouldn't be a delta. This goes for:

 * vanilla Ubuntu server as installed with D-I or other installers
 * Ubuntu images on the cloud (its not "Ubuntu Cloud" its just "Ubuntu
 * LXD images
 * Ubuntu installed by MAAS
 * Ubuntu Core OS snap
