OK, so without UXA. Maybe I can supply a text file with the template in
the home directory of the OEM user.

Well, do you think it is hard for end users to understand, that they
should click on that button at the top left corner of the desktop? And
would it be worth providing two versions?

I chose to add some improvements that I prefer to use. One reason is
that there is no limit set by the size of the iso file to fit on a CD,
so it does not cost much to add a few packages and tweaks. Here is a
list of what I added.

*Everybody: Please give feedback about these tweaks*

TT alias touchpad-toggle
alias rm='rm -i'
the grub menu is shown (not hidden in a single boot system)
lxterminal in autostart (for the OEM user)
changed permissions of /media/oem to improve access to automounted
devices (for the OEM user)
alias l='ls -l' (for the OEM user)
template in fstab to uncomment for floppy
wooden-wall (changed default background)

If there is an opinion to provide a pure Lubuntu 13.10 system without
tweaks (only the OEM feature), I will make such a system.

By the way, I have also considered providing a Lubuntu tarball with
xubuntu-desktop installed, so a Lubuntu-Xubuntu tarball.
