I'm afraid so for now, yes. It could come back in a future release,
but we'll need help to make it happen. The live images we're building
are based on the live-task-* metapackages. We need somebody to work
out what's wanted for a "standard" or "console" image, put together a
matching live-task-foo metapackage and commit to maintaining it...
