GNOME3 defaults are indeed insane, but nobody forces you to use GNOME3.
Also, Debian isn't at fault, we aren't the upstream for GNOME3, we just
to support it.

The only thing I don't like is that d-i (or should I say tasksel?) hides
desktop will be installed when you select "Graphical environment". IMO, a
sane default would be something like: "Graphical environment using
${whatever} desktop". Has this been considered? Or has this changed
already since last time I tried?
