The former would satisfy the users who have already installed Debian
(where it is a matter of a mere apt-get dist-upgrade ) and may not
appeal to potential new users. Whereas the latter alternative (waiting
for a mature D-I) would not be of any help to _both_ groups.  

IMHO we should try _not_ to deceive as many users as possible.

Have a nice day!
