Isn't this essentially what the default profile is?  Basically server is
just default + USE="apache2 ldap mysql snmp truetype xml".

Hmm, which of those flags is not like the others?  Maybe it is needed
for a use-dependency/etc.

It seems like a not-quite-minimal and definitely not all-in-one set of
features.  I could see if this were some kind of run-your-whole-network
appliance that threw in everything from DNS to mail to asterisk, and
with a canned set of integrated configuration files for turnkey
operation.  I could see if we just stuck with the minimal default
profile.  I just don't get having a LAMP box without the P, but with
ldap and snmp - oh, and truetype...
