I think that it should be a part of the distribution (on the cd), it
just gives people some demarcation as to when they have a complete
system as opposed to a base system.  I have a complete system here (and
a bit more) even though I don't have the ham radio packages installed
since I'm not a ham.  (Well...)  On the other hand, I do have an hp
palmtop, so I have the lxtools package.  Neither set of these constitute
part of a complete system; they are optional.  They do make part of a
complete debian distribution though.a

Sounds fine to me.
