I don't want to start a flamewar or something, but keep in mind that 
there are several people, pretty much unexperienced with Linux and 
keyboard shortcuts or combining them. They might be lost or in 
difficulty if nano is installed on it's own. mc or mcedit isn't too 
heavy and so easy to use that it would be a good idea, in my opinion, to 
include it.

This is from my own experience. Now, I can manage to learn how to use 
nano or vi (I use emacs personally), but editing in text console was 
such a pain when I started using Linux until I found out about mcedit. 

Couldn't it be possible to installed both mcedit (basic) and nano 
(advanced) then? Its not like if they were heavy...
