is memtest86+ useful in ubuntu-standard ?

Hey all,
  Looking at the contents of the cloud images, memtest86+ is one of the
packages that I questioned the necessity of in a cloud image.
  That is in the cloud images as cloud images are ubuntu-server and
ubuntu-standard tasks plus a small amount of other packages.

 memtest86+ was added to standard on 2006-06-20.

 Do we still feel that it is necessary as part of the default install ?

 If people do still feel it is useful as part of the default install, is
there a reasonable way we can explicitly exlude it from cloud images
without removing 'ubuntu-standard' ?
