That's very, very near of my own vision for a "perfect" Linux OS. We have
the big advantage that everything yet still not done. And we count with
tools (delta-rpms, metapackages) to build a core system with "add-ons" (like
server packages, desktop packages...) improving modularity and system

At the same time, i'm aware that it can be a too big break from the mageia's
origins (in the meaning of system's scheme and organization). So, if we can
progressively drive mageia to this new scheme sounds reasonable too.
