This is easily to reconcile.

With Ubuntu Server, you get a choice of which groups of packages you'd
like to install. So there's a CLI only install, there's a LAMP install
etc.

Why not use the same model for Lubuntu?

Provide, say, three package groups:

* A basic desktop-only install. I'd suggest some kind of GUI network
connection manager, terminal, desktop settings configuration tool, and
a GUI package manager tool (so you can install whatever other packages
you like). Perhaps it might have a desktop icon to allow sudo users to
easily install a variety of web browsers, office suites and other
tools, perhaps also giving advice on minimum/recommended hardware
requirements for each featured package.

* A netbook install. Everything the "basic" install has got, plus, I'd
suggest, Firefox, OpenOffice and Cheese (all netbooks have a webcam,
we need to demonstrate that the webcam works), PLUS a netbook launcher
interface.

* A full-fat install. Everything that the "netbook" install has got,
but no netbook launcher interface, and then all the packages that the
normal Desktop Ubuntu install has got. Basically the whole Desktop
Ubuntu but with LXDE. Some packages might have to be substituted if
they rely heavily on Gnome.
