I would say I'm not for this on a LTS release.

The reasoning for us not creating a live disk is 2-fold.

    * Live disks do not preform well for audio. (our core audience)
    * 2 more disks to test where our testing is already very poor.
    * And a 3rd one, resources. ie: diskspace on Canonical servers.

I will also say I'm generally against this. But if it happens after the 
LTS and is what people really want, I won't be a roadblock.
