Well, I have no complaints if you get things done earlier, of course :)

I'd presume we'd ship with 2.2.x on the boot floppies and as our
standard kernel, with 2.4.x kernel images readily available for those
that want them (and supported).

We either need boot-floppies or debian-installer for woody; and if Joey
says debian-installer won't be ready, I can only see one conclusion. So,
yes, we're going with b-f's for woody. Is that the confirmation you want?
