Well, we could have a comps file that defines groups like...
But that's a fairly large shift in design.
There is a question how far to go, however, I think one could not argue that
the base group's description "This group includes a minimal set of
packages." is not really accurate.
We could alternatively say that desktop doesn't include @base, and just rely
on explicit dependencies. But that would need case by case evaluation;
prelink and pm-utils are obvious things we want.
