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.
