Important packages will be installed by default.
7.7. What is an Essential, Required, Important, Standard, Optional, or Extra package?
Important packages should be found on any Unix-like system.
Other packages which the system will not run well or be usable without will be here. This does NOT include Emacs or X or TeX or any other large application. These packages only constitute the bare infrastructure.
