Focussing on the desktop is the core of this - imho - misguided idea.
I'd still like to be able have a small, self-contained, Debian that I
can run on about anything. /usr is where all the real bloat (Gnome etc.)
lies, which may or may not be available, and if you eg. consider your
favourite phone storage, that's 512MB internally, or similar, with /home
presumably on an external storage (SD card).

Indeed. Nowadays, we should support a much wider range of devices, not
just computers the size of refrigerators.
