Ber, I agree with your rationale of why the bottom up approach is 
important, be that the sympal solution or something else,  as i think it 
lays the foundation of things like civicspace installer which I will 
call it "drupal  module configurator" if I'm not mistaken  its main purpose.

Given drupal's flexibility which can suit many different uses, I think 
it is wise to focus our energy on building those infrastructures and to 
expose the APIs at different layers, as we will never be able to satisfy 
all "end-users" so providing the tools to enable the middle-tier, who 
are the larger drupal community other than the regular drupal 
contributors,  to build drupal value-added services/packages for the 
real end users seems a way to expand drupal adoptions .
