Thanks for the thought, but I'm aware of the XFCE Live CDs. My
question is since live CDs don't offer the option to choose the kind
of install, not even the option to choose the partition on the disk,
upgrading to a clean XFCE desktop is not possible without loosing my
current partitioning scheme. Is my understanding correct here?

no this is not correct, when you choose install to disk from the livecd
desktop it starts anaconda and you can set the keyboard and language
settings as well as set up custom partitions, or tell it to use existing
partitions no problem, the only thing i found that was i had persistence set
on my live usb and when i did finaly get round to installing to the hard
drive none of the stuff that i had changed since first running the live usb
(eg the stuff on the persistent part of it) didn't get transferred across,
now this was with the f11 beta xfce snapshot so i'm not sure if it's just a
problem with that spin, or if it happens with all live spins.

Thank you Phil for correcting my misconceptions. This is great news
for me. Now I can move to a completely Gnome free XFCE desktop for
F11. :)

don't be too sure about that, there are still some gnome dependencies on a fedora xfce install ;)
