This discussion makes me wonder, how many people do ISO based Server
installs and would be affected by this?
Before things like MAAS came about, I very rarely did ISO based
installs of server OSs, we always automated via preseeds or kickstart
scripts and PXE booting.

I'm not commenting for or against, and for the record, I too would say
15 seconds is a good compromise.  I'm really just asking to satisfy my
own curiosity.
