Agree.  Maybe we could provide a hint like:


  (packages (cons* nss-certs ;for HTTPS access
                   gvfs      ;for user mounts

                   ;; Following packages recommended to be installed
                   ;; per-user with `guix package -i PACKAGE'.
                   ;; Otherwise uncomment them to install globally.
                   ;; icecat ;GNU version of the Firefox browser
                   ;; libreoffice ;office suite

                   ;; Basic administrator tasks

When I saw a lightweight-desktop template for the first time, there was
a good ad about ratpoison window manager which I didn't know before.
This is a really good way to promote reasonable software.  :-)
