I have to agree here....
I mean "standard" is standard not "What the average newbie needs"
The normal newbie doesn't use sed, awk, grep, or much else.

Even if they don't use an MTA that doesn't mean that its not a standard 
compnonent that you could reasonably ecpet to find on a system.
Having an MTA will eventually be good for them, once they figure out
how to use it (hell I used Netscape for mail for a while...
but I still used my local MTA to send mail)
