Definitely something we want to do (you do mean the slideshow during the
installation progress) but we also have to make sure that this slideshow is
available for users before/after the installation (think use on events,
breaks during presentations, ...).

Not every user sits behind his PC while Gentoo is installing, and not every
user is interested in this screenshow, but the two aren't related.
