I haven't encountered that phrase before: "the spirit of the derivative".
What would you say is "the spirit" of Ubuntu? Hardly lightweight, being
a full blown Gnome distribution. Unity is not lightweight either.

It certainly seems so. But certainly not in "the spirit of" Ubuntu.
Why did they bother to call it Xubuntu and yet leave out everything
remotely like Ubuntu?

I would certainly expect "lighter alternatives" if Xfce sat on top of a
CLI based derivative, but I repeat: Why did they bother to call it
Xubuntu and yet leave out everything remotely like Ubuntu?
