Why the package `shadow' is not installed by default in the latest GuixS
Why the package `shadow' is not installed by default in the latest GuixSD image?

I have recently reported a weird issue with X11 here, and am now
retrying to install GuixSD on that same machine on which I had the
issue. Now another trouble that I encounter during the installation is
that the shadow package is no installed on my machine, and thus I don't
have access to the ‘passwd’ command in order to set a root password and
proceed w/ installation thru ssh. Is this a deliberate choice to leave
out this package from the installation media or a bug? It's not that
important as I'm installing shadow via ‘guix package -i’ ATM but it
takes time (compiles stuff) unnecessarily.
