Seriously, stop obsessing over floppies. They're for legacy support _only_; if they end up uninternationalised, or have to be two stage, or use some other kernel, it just doesn't matter. CD installs, netboot installs, boot-from-existing-OS and maybe USB disk-key boots are the ones that are interesting these days. Get those working, and people'll be able to hack around the irritating cases where they might use floppies today.
