I wouldn't say "dangerous".

Look, you're missing my point.  I'm not saying drop pure floppy
installation.  I'm must saying that delaying potato release for the
sole reasons of trying to get base installation down from 10 floppies,
say, 6 or 7 (as in slink) is not a very good idea.  So what, they have
to make 3 or 4 more floppies for base.  Who cares?

I'd rather focus on the smoothness of installation in general.
