Which leads to the possibility of shipping a Server Debian which includes a
Base system with services which do not require a console attached and Desktop
Debian, which includes all the desktop goodies.

Otherwise, this situation will lead to Mozilla not being installed in the
default Debian and someone putting something like backports.debian.net which
will end up being a componentized Debian (as it is nowadays) and used as a
Debian On Steroids for Desktop Usage.
