That's like not wanting to make a decision? As a consequence every
desktop in that selection box MUST be fully QA tested (so release
stopper bugs, etc) and supported long term.
Mageia does this for example (offer choice + tests those choices), but
only offers KDE/GNOME in that choice. Rest can still be chosen, but is
not fully QA tested so they're a bit more hidden.
