In my experience, the most confusing fact for users of downstream-packaged
version of TeX Live is that a package named "texlive" exists, which does *not*
correspond to the default install scheme of upstream TeX Live (btw this is not
specific to Debian, I think).

IMHO, it would help a lot if either:
- the "texlive" package installs all (ie, it's texlive-full)
- there is no "texlive" package, but a series of packages like
"texlive-minimal", "texlive-medium", ..., "texlive-full".

It would avoid a lot of bad surprises and/or misunderstanding for end users.
