I was just trying to say that the installation dialog makes it too easy
and therefore encourages people to change the defaults when in fact they
would be better off leaving things alone.

Sure you can run without lvm.  Sure you can put home on a different
partition.  Sure you can add other repositories during installation.
The problem with doing all that is it takes you off the well-trodden
path.  For one, the default install is going to be the best tested
configuration.  For another, many newbies are encouraged to muck with
the defaults without fully understanding the ramifications.
