Xubuntu is very much an official Ubuntu derivative. The fact that we do
remove gnome and install Xfce means we do not have to install all the
applications that Ubuntu uses. If you really want those applications,
as stated already, please install them. 

When you run Kubuntu, you will find it does not install the same
applications as Ubuntu, either. However, it is still an Ubuntu
derivative too.

Until you understand what a derivative is, please accept the facts as
presented to you. As long as Canonical lists these as derivatives, they
will be.
