They do already exist and are labelled "*Ubuntu."

That's what people end up trying and installing after they waste their time 
installing Debian just to see that their wireless and/or ethernet card 
"doesn't work" (because most people don't know or care why it doesn't. It 
just doesn't.)

Trying to tell people that they need to download "something extra" to make 
their networking devices work is not fun when they just wiped off the only 
thing that was working: Windows.

And for those suggesting one should modify the installation media: good luck 
saying that to newcomers.

It's difficult enough for some people to find the right iso they need.
