If application A is deployed as a standalone application built using the major components of the target operating system, a'la a Debian package, I don't have to provide source code for anything other than the application itself.


Alright then, enlighten me.

Furthermore, the GPL's "mere aggregation" clause allows for non-GPL applications to run in GPL operating systems.

Yes, but we're talking about the *reverse*.  The mere aggregation

Allow me to restate, then. Mere aggregation also allows GPL applications to run under a non-GPL kernel.
