Note that business users can be small business as well. Central admin is 
only interesting for Enterprise, which is a again different user type 
than small business. Just like "mom and dad" users are different from 
tech savvy power users.

GPO support and an MSI would be great, yes.

Personally, I think we should support all users types that we have - but 
with a bias towards freedom and self-empowering. Development effort 
should be roughly proportional to the demand from users. This doesn't 
have to be a user type, but could be on a feature level.
