I usually appreciate your enlightened comments, but here they are
not useful at all. This decision has been taken in coordination with
Anthony (yes he was reluctant but it's not like I completely ignored
what he said ...) and you're speaking of things that you don't know
since you haven't followed the complete discussion on debian-cd.

Please trust the debian-cd team and spend your time more wisely ...

This won't happen for the final official images, it's just to ease the
test of the new booting scheme (which is already successfully used by
other distributions).
