Yes, but it would be nice if it was, wouldn't it? Then one could use
Debian as _the_ reference distribution; one could also conveniently
install the lot if one so wished. Let's not limit ourselves to something
second rate.

I know my grasp of Debian's complete history is not what it could be,
but was any provision made for th redesigning of Debian's goals? (This
is probably more a -policy issue.) I certainly don't think we should
remain steadfast to whatever was set out in 1994 or whenever.

[When I say that I do not mean that our philosophy/rationale should be
changed; rather, our goals and horizons should be expanded.]
