So what is this Universal OS, a kernel with packages running on it?

And at the moment for most of us the kernel is linux, and soon we will have
hurd, bsd, qnx, ... too. But isn't the biggest part of the Debian OS project
the packages (boy, this sounds like a Sven statement...), so most of it is
about packages. Which is somewhat contrary to the original question. Maybe I
just didn't understand the question, can somebody explain it?
