We'll have three choices: 

- Full CD install (no network connection required) (leads to the
  normal ISOs)
- NetInstall (network connection required, base on CD) (leads to the
  d-i + base images)
- NetInstall for bootable business cards (network connection required,
  only d-i on cd)

Today we have five netinst images alone with no real difference in
description (LordSutch.com ISOLINUX mini-ISO image, Ian Eure's netinst
images, David Kimdon's boot-floppies netinst images, Eduard Bloch's
netinst images and XFS netinst image).  The only image which
differentiates itself from the others (wrt to the description) is the
XFS netinst image.

So, going from five to two netinst images will cause less rather than
more confusion, I think.
