I don't know to what degree this is enforced, but
contains a big warning:
Do NOT change the default behavior of applications. An example is to
configure Nautilus to use the "Browser mode" by default. There may be
valid reasons to change parts of the application, but you'll need to
discuss them with the Spin SIG in your proposal.
Seems to be pretty outdated (*), we're past many things written there aka Live
CD size - for example for desktop and KDE spins. So the CD part could be removed,
I know several spins doing changes in defaults and it's really up to SIG
standing behind spin than Spins SIG.

Although that is only in the "Live Spins" section.
"Installation Spins" says
"No notes on Installation Spins yet" (as it has for at least the last four
years). Not that I'm one to talk -- documenting stuff is hard. :)
It needs updates :). Any volunteer?
