That's a fair objection (and according to jeremy this can be fixed in
the future). 

Btw, we have a couple of other bugs (probably more urgent) like that;
for starters my pet peeve is firstboot; we really ought to query the
user for this information (set up users, user image (gnome cheese or
ktuberling!) etc.) at live cd install time; preferably utilizing the
time span when we're copying the OS payload to the system.
