In that case I agree that the benefit of maintaining a single
image seems to outweigh the cost. So let's stick with one
image for the time being.

Maybe we can add a few easily accessible scripts or some such
for, say, upgrading Debian inside the image or moving
internally taken backups to a folder shared with the host ?

OTOH, would it make sense to have a server-only image ?  That
one could even be headless, or only offer a lightweight
desktop for use of, say, pgadmin.

But, first of all, having one current, easily maintainable
image is very useful all by itself !
