Well, heck, just go with spins then.  Put them on DVDs.  Allow a default 
desktop environament and a selection of other desktop environments. 
Common brown bear users will use the default spin (Gnome) and more 
sophisticated users will pick their spin and if they need something not 
on the spin, they will yum install it.  I don't intend to start the 
discussion on default desktop, but it really doesn't seem to be of any 
consequence since all popular desktops have their own spin.
