    OK then, how about texlive-recommended? 

Hate to be contrary, but please, please, don't name anything that.
Because what's actually recommended, from my point of view anyway, is
"full".  Anything else just causes trouble.

I know there are good reasons for some users not to install that, and
that is why we go to this all trouble of chopping it up.  But I venture
to say that the majority of users, even Debian users, are best served by
installing everything.

I came up with the best scheme names I could ... not convinced by
anything else I've seen so far, sorry.
