Okay, let my phrase my question differently then: 

What are the minimal set of of packages then that should be installed in
every cloud image?

debootstrap --variant=minbase?
debootstrap --variant=scratchbox?

We should define this, and work on a policy then so we can publish that
policy enough in time for cloud providers to react for the stretch
