As an alternative to doing all this work to create a Debian-Lite/personal 
edition would be to have the guys working on the new dselect (sorry, I can't 
remember the name) to have setup scenarios.

I don't see why any of this customized setup can't be done from dselect.  Just 
tell dselect you want a personal system with X and it will make most of the 
major decisions for you.
