The idea of having the componets do one thing and do it well is so that you can swap them out for other components without incompatibilities.

That's contrary to the design goals of the project.  They intentionally made it so that you can change out every component of the software, right down to the most basic boot loader elements.  If only one dsitribution and software stack was ever made for this hardware, then it's an indication that the creators failed to achieve their vision.

I don't see what you're complaining about either.  Why do you want to not have choice?
