Actually, most of the extras that you mention have already been
considered in the CommonCustomizations specification which was discussed
at the Ubuntu Summit in Paris: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CommonCustomizations
It has also been discussed extensively on the Ubuntu Forums:
Matt Zimmerman is working to add meta-packages to the Universe,
Multiverse and Commercial repositories to make it easy to install these
commonly added packages for Ubuntu.
If you read the spec, you will find a clear explanation of why various
commonly installed packages cannot be added to Ubuntu as a default.
Hope this helps,
