Does it makes sense to have each application installed?

While I think vlc is a very decent choice, I think it depends on the
used Desktop Environment.

There are some editing tools like avidemux, kdenlive, etc.

Is that really a task? You generally want only one media center
installed, no?

But what we could do is to identify user tasks. Then, instead of
providing metapackages or tasksel files, we list all applications in
debian that can fulfill the purpose of that task, and give
recommendations for the 'best' application in that task.

The first idea is probably implemented most easily with debtags, while
for the second we could consider popcon data.
