This is actually very possible to do though seeds. Seeds are inherited, so it is very possible to create a single seed that produces something like this, or any other form of arrangement. I choose not to initially in the seed I made in part because it was the first one I did so I needed to learn how to make one with something simple to start with, because I thought that might initially further divide people into subsets of Lubuntu rather than at least starting from a common view of shared goals, and because I did not want to create any such decision or specific divisions without any discussion or consensus existing for it first. But I had also been thinking of a division much like this.
