I wouldn't mind seeing such a package actually.

In my dream perfect world, it would include gnome and a handful of
useful apps that someone might need to use direct on a server (firefox,
thunderbird/evolution, GUI admin tool), but without gdm, or the more
user desktop specific extras, like the index search, network-manager, etc.
