Because that's not "everything" and saying it is just puts us back into that 
confusing place where everything doesn't mean everything.  We don't install 
kenrel.i586 kernel.i686 kernel-xen etc... on systems that don't support it. A 
yum install \* would do this, and bam, your box won't boot.  How fun is that?

Now, when you bring up a selected subset, these spins could be "everything" by 
default, as in you're getting the Desktop CD set, it could list all packages 
that were targetted for this spin as default (some manditory) and you've 
got "everything".  Deselect what you don't want.

Will we do this for Fedora Desktop/Server/KDE?  Probably not.
