The installer already has these, so I don't understand what you
want changed.  You can select kde or gnome, or custom, where these
additional choices are present.

Bad title.  All of the iso images are already hybrid iso images, in
that they can be booted from cd/dvd or usb drive, etc.  I think you
are referring to creating a live dvd, rather then the current live
cd images.  Note that there are still a lot of people with limited
download speed, and/or download caps, beyond which they have to pay
extra.  I do agree that a live dvd would be more useful, and be less
work to create/test than the current live cds.

The doc team does update the documentation for each release already.

But what packages should that include?  Ask 10 people, you'll get at
least 10 different answers.

That I agree would be useful, but will require a lot of review to
figure out what is actually needed for a new user.
