Policy describes the "standard" priority level as:

  "These packages provide a reasonably small but not too limited character-mode
   system. This is what will be installed by default if the user doesn't select
   anything else. It doesn't include many large applications."

which means that in the context of Policy s.2.5, the word "standard" implies
command-line interface.  However, word has it that some of our users (those
heretics! :-)) haven't studied Policy throughtfuly, and might think that
"standard" means something like "must-have" [1].

... which obviously it isn't when you're setting up a GUI-only system for a
command-line-impaired user (or even, when the user himself is).  In that case
you'll most likely want to avoid this task completely, specially since it
contains packages (at, exim4, nfs-common, portmap) that launch system daemons,
increasing boot time and overall memory usage.

I would suggest:
