I think this is what CDD (Custom Debian Distributions) is designed to 
facilitate.  I.E., a solid base, and then a Debian-LAMP distro, a 
Debian-EMailServer distro, a Debian-GroupwareServer distro, and a 
Debian-Gnome distro (which is what Ubuntu in effect is).

Good ol' Debian remains ancient and stable.

I bet a few people will chime up saying this is what they have in mind, 
I think I'm repeating their opinion.
