Yes, i think that this would be the ideal place to start.
next thing IMHO would be put an administration interface on top of it,
and that's were it gets trickier...
would existing projects work well for our packages? would they be
modular enough to include our next "server package" (mail, file,

beeing this targeted at dapper +1 for obvious reasons, i would think
that it's feasable to build something from scratch but of course that
would be up to cannonical (in-house or bounty?)

actually, even for dapper it wouldn't be any difficult just to create
a meta-package that depends on apache2, perl, php and mysql:

$ sudo apt-get install lamp-server

To summarize, i just want to say that whatever the future plans for
ubuntu server are, they will be good as long as something is done that
guives the user a choice to install a "non-base" system.
