How hard/sane would it be to have XFCE as default on installation CDs
and Gnome3 as default on installation DVDs or netinst CDs?

That way, people with disconnected, old computer get XFCE which has a
higher chance of working there. People with computers that either
have a DVD or a fast network connection, would instead default to the
heavier/more-feature-complete desktop.
