Lower priority, include only if they will fit

  1. apt Ordering

  2. Enable Hybrid suspend/hibernate by Default (proposed by OEM, but doesn't seem viable given current kernel support)

Declined Sessions

  1. Improved server boot (superseded by Server boot and upstart)

  2. Use xz compression by default for binary packages (proposed by community member) (we aren't going to use it by default, and we'll naturally get elective support by way of a dpkg merge)

  3. Use Energy Star compliance power settings by default (proposed by OEM) - After a conversation with Colin, Pete Graner, and Pat McGowan, this was identified as something that the Desktop team would be involved in, not foundations
