The problem is that you need to explain to users how to use addon desktop CDs. And this will become a problem, I'm pretty sure. There is stuff like media changing during installation, not forgetting to add it, also we would need to test quite a bit more scenarios to make sure the experience is smooth.
That is smaller problem then to describe how to use oBS repo if repo has no 1-click link.
One link on fresh installed desktop "Additional software" will not need explanation, it will be call for click.
It seems that whole idea is to have small base that is good tested, and addons that are pretty much the same as patterns, or few patterns. Rounded selections of software needed for certain purpose. Though, for this purpose base is not necessarily the same as base pattern.
Keep in mind that 'everything is right there' is one of the most noted advantages of openSUSE compared to other distros.
Yes, and with every release is even more right :-)
