"Desktop" too generic

Why not optimize distributions for specific tasks?
* Web Devel desktop
etc, all integrated to suit someone who makes websites... This could be further divided into Graphics, and Programming, with overlaps
* DTP desktop
* Presentation desktop
- optional laptop
- optional projector
- optional laser pointer
- Power Point type program
all set up to optimize creation and showing of presentations
Of course, any of these solutions could have all the other software added to them, but the point would be to focus on getting the few (or several) tasks of each job well thought-through, standardized, and optimized. Then a web development shop, or a magazine, could deploy to their workers.
Why try to be all to all?
