I concur, but I would claim that the percentage is larger by factors than the 1% you quote. But especially new users prefer not to be dumped into aptitude with its 10'000 packages before even getting a chance to log in and get a bit of a feel for their new Debian system. In the courses I taught, people were always very grateful when I showed them the philosophy behind a minimal install and an install-on-demand policy afterwards.
