So in this case the user can plug USB devices?

IIRC those support USB pass-through and virtual sound boards.

Does it currently have USB pass-through support and virtual sound

Hum. On the long run that will probably be an issue, since Debian now
does pull them by default, so we demote some of the dependencies to
recommends when they are not real hard dependencies, so that people who
really don't want the software installed can uninstall it.  Not pulling
recommands will thus make you miss interesting packages to be installed.

You will probably want to have a look at the task-*-desktop tasks &
such: there is libreoffice-gtk which is needed for accessibility.
