Not minimal

This is not minimalistic configuration.

Why are you inheriting from STS 0 (which is by the way Team site. Blank site is STS#1!), instead of GLOBAL#0, which is truly the blank site?

Also, if you are provisioning your own, custom default.aspx page (rather than simply referencing to the template's page), you can't have the Module(s) node within the <Project> node. You have to create a separate Module, provisioned by a separate Feature (you should make it hidden, ideally). And then your primary Feature should also activate the page feature, in order to provision the page.

I have learned this the hard way :D
