The smallest image with a graphical environment (preferably XFCE, but not necessarily) would make sense.
The use case is the following:
- you need the smallest possible image with a graphical environment
- you modify this image by:
* adding your own custom packages and their dependencies (possibly not on CD-1)
* adding your own preseeding
* adding some post-install scripts
This allows to build custom installation image quite easily. For such scenarios, netinst or DVD images are not well adapted, but XFCE CD image like  are.
The drawback of using DVD-1 images like  is the size (4GB vs 640MB). Think about Jenkins jobs having to manipulate such files when archiving/copying artifacts.
The drawback of using netinst images  is that the number of packages missing to install XFCE (or gnome) is huge, and the list is difficult to establish/maintain.
With kind regards,
