as a user I care about having the same "experience" anywhere I run debian,
I already hate that each cloud provisions a different username for me to login,

Consistency has a great value when you use multiple environments, cloud

I don't mind if there is a task/metapkg called "EC2-optimal",
"OpenStack-Optimized", whatever. but the default image on each cloud
provider should be as close as possible to debian installed from d-i.
