An Idea for an easier Install

You just have in mind that Ubuntu is worldwide distributed and all 
countries have not dsl connections, so on my mind it is better to have a 
functionnal distro with a maximum of local avalable softwares on disc.
But it is perhaps a good way to have a minimal graphic base (with xorg 
configured and enabled) allowing user to install what he needs, in fact 
a gnome desktop without totem, serpentine, rythmbox and OOo like what 
Texstar do with MiniPCLOS because the first work I do after an install 
is an apt-get remove unused stuff (fonts, xorg drivers....).
