Couldn't we have the following:

- Live CDs (like Mandriva One, including proprietary stuff) (live cds 
are planned, aren't they?
- A purely free, libre and open source installer dvd
- An addon cd for the installer dvd containing the firmware, drivers 
and stuff?

I know, if we have those "One-like" live cds, we don't really need the 
last one, but I'm quite sure, there are more people than me out here, 
who prefer a normal installer iso over a live cd...
