 I would rather want to stay things as they with X now. If X will be in
standard more application would get there as well (sooner or later). This
could lead to situation where one has to install X even if it's not needed on
particular machine. Of course i might be wrong...
 Some 2-3 months ago i installed Debian on some box and there was a selection
of types of installation (workstation, server etc i don;t recal exact names)
and i really think this will suffice (if someone is installing on a
workstation he will get X software anyway)
 Of course this all is not an issue for advanced users (at least i think so)
