Unfortunately, servers come in different flavors.

A fair percentage of my users need Internet servers with web, mail, ftp,

I used the script found at
10_Debian.html on breezy for two co-located servers this week and was
pleasantly surprised.

Even the degenerate case of setting up virtual hosting and email for a
single website is going to make support a lot easier.

Why not distribute a few dummy packages which roll up all the packages
for the major server classes - Internet, firewall, file sharing, captive
portal, etc..
