 The only Unix's editor I know is vi. Emacs is a Free-BSD/Linux editor.
Great thing, certainly, but useless for Unix people. And so, wasting
disk space.
100 MB are 100 MB, even on a 20GB disk.

  Sure, Debian is good. But the question is: how could it be better?

Do you want to define a standard system or a minimal system? I think you
define a minimal one (with vi, lynx, and no graphical environment), but
there are
as many standards as users. And, as you say, it's why task packages are
