I don't think there is, which is why I feel that we should also
publish "official AMIs" that aren't Marketplace AMIs. (Basically
identical, but all that would be required to use is the AMI ID. This
would be similar to other official AMIs like Amazon Linux and Ubuntu.)
I understand the priority is to get the Marketplace AMIs sorted, but
would like us to circle back to this at some point.
(Eventually, I would like to see these "non-market" Debian AMIs
featured in the EC2 console's "launch instance" "Wizards".)
