While an "everything" install may have made some sense in the pre-Extras
days, it's just silly now.  There are so many packages in Core+Extras,
many of which duplicate functionality.  I mean you'll get at least three
SMTP servers (sendmail, exim, postfix), probably four or five window
managers/desktop environments, and who knows what else.
