Why would that be worse than a full-upgrade (dist-upgrade)?
I don't understand your question.
AFAICT the OP has two options to install sid: full-upgrade or install
from scratch (with the business-card image).
ISTM that in both cases the amount of data downloaded is similar, but
your remark seems to imply something else. I asked what would be the

OP indicates that he is bandwidth-constrained. Thus, any technique

Scientists are people, too. IOW, they also "crave power, money,
respect, and influence, and they also fear for their jobs. Each
can be a healthy motivator, but each has the ability to turn a
good scientist into a bad one; and in some cases, they can turn
a good scientist into a charlatan."
