Conservative defaults is the answer. And what is conservative depends on
what people are used to in a given community.

NetBSD/pkgsrc communities are conservative in terms of installing minimal
things. (Or so I believe.)

If such a community gives me a package named git, having been used to
their conservativeness (as perceived by me and mentioned above), I'd not
expect it to be bloated with gui.

That's my view.
