I dunno.

What's so important this is missing?

Personally, on desktops/laptops/etc I'll do an Everything install. I can
afford the $4.30 of disk space and so much package related trouble just
vanishes.

On servers, I'll still do the smallest possible install for the task it
needs to do.

How about this. Only show the individual packages if the user chooses a
"Custom" install.  On the other classes, don't show it.
