For the low-level user-space, give me glibc, coreutils and bash in a decent terminal app and I'm satisfied. Systemd, dbus and (dpkg or rpm) would be a big bonus, but is by no means required.
The uid scheme and windowing system (Surfaceflinger, Wayland, X11, etc) is irrelevant to me, as long as both Qt and GTK+ works on it, and you can launch programs from the terminal inheriting it's environment.
I'd also want an official way of gaining a root prompt, but to me that is not about "being closer to traditional Linux" but about device ownership (if it's my computer, I should be able to do what I want with it).
