The desktop-base package was supposed to address exactly that problem,
but there was not a lot of interest in the KDE and GNOME teams to
actually work on that.

I think we have managed to create some feeling on the GNOME front,
though, with a default desktop and customized splash screen. GDM lacks
integration, though.

That'd be something, but there's much more that we should think about.
This is just the top of the iceberg.
