Interesting and good, but the LiveDVD is, let us say the truth -
overkill.

A other good solution would be merging Universal and Minimal-CD
togehter, so we offer only a smaller Universal-CD (about 200-400 MB) and
a complete LiveCD (about 700 MB).

No. Only the Installer does this! This is not possible via shell,
because the users have no access to the voodoo-scripts.

times from 
the LiveCD.

Why nobody removes Gnome, Open-Office from the LiveCD and replace it by
a true Stage3? It would be also nice, not be forced always switch of the
automatic start of the howl X11-Crap.
Default could be the plain shell, as ever, and a message who says the
user he could type "installer" (for ncurses-installer) and
"gui-installer"  (for X11 with Installer). Gentoo is about choices ;-)


Best Wishes
