BTW, Was is actually a standard Debian image ?
To the best of my knowledge, I would define it as all the packages with
Priority: required and important.
According to the Debian Jessie installation guide [1], the *standard*
task is also recommended.

In server/containers environments it makes sense to restrict the list
of packages installed.
However the main aim of the Vagrant Virtualbox base boxes,are shareable
development environments.
In this kind of setup, I would expect the usual comfort of the debian
experience, having for instance a mail server to send stuff,
bash-completion or patch installed, all packages with come with the
standard priority.

So I am in favor of installing this task, which will bring aptitude as a
side effect.

Concerning the inclusion/removal of providers via specific boxes, why not.
