Just my two unimportant cents, but I think that those are the type of
settings (along with time zone) that the user should be prompted for
either during the installation process or upon first-boot. That makes
the default setting irrelevant, and provides less reason for a
customized distro. Similarily, I suppose, language and text encoding
settings might be offered during installation (possibly as one of the
first steps).

Yep, I agree - BUT, we're not even to a point where installations are
an option - and this is why everyone is up in arms!

Right now "Distro" is being used to describe LiveCDs and Demo/Promo
CDs and VMWare images... There has been very little distinction
provided for these.

First boot is every time on a LiveCD...
