IMHO traceroute should be priority standard.  i just installed a few
machines recently and thought to myself "what the fsck, traceroute is
not installed"  when i tried to run /usr/sbin/traceroute later on. 

iirc a package should be priority standard if it invokes a `what the
fsck! where is foo?!' from the user/admin if its not present by default. 

although apt-get made it less then a big deal it still seemed odd.
