The default has no bearing whatsoever on whether un-connected users can
or can't install one of the more minimal desktops, if they so choose.
I think, the aggression (on both parts) is pretty unsubstantiated. At
least I take this from this sentence:

Looks to me like a misunderstanding, as nobody ever suggested, as far as
I know, that installation medias for non-default desktops should be
provided in the future. The questions just is, what should be the
default. I at least see no conflict in choosing one of the "shiny desktops"
for this with supporting less internet-supplied countries, as long as
there are smaller installation medias for this use-case.
