That would be a decision for release engineers on [EMAIL PROTECTED],
I'd think they would react:
        "How many bytes would that cost on boot floppy & cdrom ?"
_If_ some space, maybe they might then debate which installer[s].

If you want to make the proposal, re@ would probably want you to
analyse space for installer & all libs on each (& which libs were
already on boot flop ).  It could be there might only be room for
a small extra CLI type installer, perhaps like NETBSD had last I
looked, & like FreeBSD had pre [libcurses ?]

A blind person asked about installers a month ago & I recall similar
Q. years back shortly after the curses thing arrived. Back then the
answer was: get a sighted person to install it, or if you only have
a simple line to braille type adaptor, NetBSD CLI installer (ending
with Net not Free installed).
