+1 to this if we can still produce a single-CD minimal install.  IMO the value if a one-disc install is higher than the value of a release that contains the initial update set.  In a month or two there will be additional updates to apply anyway, so it doesn't seem prudent to sacrifice the one-disc install for the life of the release to gain a (very) small convenience up front.  Just my .02
