Yes, you did :)

1. My proposal was in no way ro replace all ISOs. There must be some
"master" ISOs which went through Mageia QA and are distributed as
"official" ISOs. But the number of different ISOs can be reduced
further than currently planned.

2. Of course one who wants to create a custom ISO has to install
Mageia first - this he could do using the smallest way there is,
another live cd, no matter which flavor.

But the advantage is, from this one download and installation he can
produce any flavor for any purpose he wants. Example:

I would only need one English live cd. From this I could install the
system. And then I could create
 - live cd with German with the DE of my choice and the software of my
personal choice
 - live cd in German for German events and to demonstrate to friends
 - live cd in German for a magazine, customized to their wishes,

All this also helps to keep everybody satisfied, not only the part who
is satisfied with the original Mageia ISOs. As such it would reduce
work for Mageia.
