Yes, please.

IMHO considering the base section doesn't necessarily represent the state of
the baseX_Y.tgz which is used by the boot-floppies (correct me if I'm wrong),
it should be phased out (abandoned gradually).

Not sure if the new debian-installer program will use the same concept of
base system, either...
