I'll add to that to note that we now have Xfce, LXDE and Sugar all on
the DVD. 

I've considered asking about making Xfce a blocking desktop, but I have
no idea how the LXDE and Sugar communities are with helping testing,
etc. 

It would mean added burden on QA folks to test more stuff, and added
burden on maintainers of those desktops to create timely fixes for any
blocker issues that come up.
