How about:

A LiveCD image that can be installed to memory stick like today, but
detects the presence of more disk (overlay mount) and offers to add any
missing packages needed to bring it up to ...

The LiveUSB / LiveDVD (Lets face it, memory sticks are a better target
than DVD's) image. This would be the image I would expect to include a
complete OpenOffice.org, vym, dia, evolution with evolution-mapi,
empathy/telepathy with a working purple-sipe extension and so on, as
well as the full complement of multimedia apps, games, development

I would see the LiveCD image as the toolbox when you need a quick
download, install on any kind of optical or memory stick media, and then
extend with whatever you need. The larger image would presumably be the
one installed on the 2 toolbox memory sticks I usually carry around (one
32-bit and one 64-bit).
