For the official OSGeo Live, I think we should stick to including 
everything. I have been pondering adding a config file (or implementing 
the one Cameron started), for the purpose of making it easier to turn 
on/off sections like those you list + different datasets, optional 
things not on the main disk etc. The idea is to make it easier for 
others to make their own variant that focuses on more specific topics, 
ie. the edu group.
