My vote is for "Typical".


* Atypical packages aren't inferred to be bad packages.

* Microsoft has spent the last decade or so training us that "Typical" is
  a rather bloated install that has just about everything you need. This
  seems like what we want.

Not commended, unusual, bad, not useful, and worse, the antonyms of a few of
the other things listed above, have rather negative connotations.
