gparted, ubiquity and other packages left behind by karmic a2 installer

Just installed karmic alpha 2, and noticed that a few packages that
should have been removed at install are left behind.

These include gparted, ubiquity, casper and a couple of others.
Ubiquity's package description even states: Installing this package on
a normal system is unlikely to be useful.

I poked around a bit and found that intrepid's installer removed all
of these packages first thing, according to /var/log/apt/ there. That
machine is now running also karmic (upgraded) and has no need for
these packages. By contrast, /var/log/apt on the freshly installed
karmic machine doesn't seem to indicate removal of any packages at
install time.

Has anyone else observed this?
