OK, OK, I give. I'm wrong. You're right. People can certainly upgrade
without having the standard packages installed. I just think it's
easier if they do, but that's just my opinion.
I've done it without having ubuntu-desktop and ubuntu-base installed,
but I've then had to sort out issues (with the kernel, gam, hal, fam,
or whatever) in the Warty-Hoary-Breezy cycle. The process of sorting
that out after the fact seems harder to me, especially on newbies,
than a few apt-get removes and installs.
But that's just me. I admit defeat.
