Well, in

Jesus Climent introduced meta-distros, a HispaLiNUX (Spanish biggest LUG)
project, and it's basically what you are talking about. The only problem is
the language, it is almost all in Spanish.

At this moment, a Gnome-live-cd has been made taking the Knoppix idea and
we are working on a set of distributions taking the Debian base system and
sets of meta-packages for specific purposes. 

I'll write in a couple of minutes to the Meta-Distros mailing-list in order
to start a translation effort, of the documentation and the distros.

Some links, in Spanish at the moment :-(

Salut.
