If we get our tasks into the tasksel, we could have two very simple
solutions for a blends specific installer medium:

1. We could preseed the installation with just the instruction to
   tasksel to preselect a specific blend.

2. We could preseed the installation with an 
   "apt install $blend-tasks"
   This would push the individual tasks for the selected blend into the
   installer's tasksel, allowing a detailed selection for the blend.

In both cases, we could stay with the standard Debian setup, so if
someone knows how to create (or modify) a standard Debian CD to change
the preseed, we are already done.

Live-CDs and Virtual machines are different, however.

Best regards
