Isn't the whole concept of "default desktop" just a matter of "which
desktop is included on CD1"? Are you proposing that Debian switches to a
series of "CD1s" (Debian Ghome Edition, Debian KDE Edition, Debian XFCE
Edition etc) or that Debian does away with offline installs entirely
("An internet connection is required to install Debian")?

What is on CD1 is really anecdotic, since most people use (or should
use) the netinst.

What does it happen when no internet connection is available (no access to internet,
no supported driver for the net card) ?
This case is certainly as anecdotic as CD1, but somehow in this situation CD1
can be very useful to step forward. So a CD1 with a light windows manager would be
a good idea; the other windows managers could be placed on the other CDs.

So the real question is being able to choose the desktop from the
installer instead of having to pre-seed this choice.

My 2 cents,
