I admit, that there might be reasons to install from other sources.
But we need to make the default, say what more then 95% of our *users*
will do, make as easy as possible.  There are options for the
bootprompt for others.

This is also the way debconf goes:  Use reasonable defaults, give options
for those who know it better or wish things different from default.

Kind regards
