I added similar comments to the wiki pages (
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/JakubRusinek/DRAFT%3A1clickInstall )
yesterday right before Jakub posted his proposal to the list. He
answered in the wiki:

"""
Adding repositories might not be required, but some kind of people don't
know how to install Compiz Fusion/etc. Also, RPM Fusion
(livna+freshrpm+dribble) will be the most popular non-free repo. When
system is installed, first thing they will probably do is installing
codecs. Then someone creates file, which helps install RPM Fusion
repository and ie. gstreamer-plugins-ugly. That's it. Making
installation easier. Also, when someone creates his RPM (not repo),
there will be no need to download it, find and click.
"""

I *currently* tend to think 1click install (with todays rpm/yum) creates
more problems then it solves, but I'm not sure if I understood the whole
concept properly.

One reasons for that option: I fear that people add many repos (like
different 3rd party repos and/or dedicated opensuse buildsservice repos
for foo or bar) or install selected packages from them that replace
packages from Fedora or their main 3rd party repo. That will quickly
result in repo mixing problems or EVR problems with updates. I'd say
people have enough such problems already.
