Was there any discussion with firsboot maintainers?

Looking at https://live.gnome.org/GnomeOS/Design/Whiteboards/InitialSetup :

"The design currently relies on running in a bare user session and changing the user's name and home directory."

That sounds extremely fragile and generally undesirable.

I don't think we really want only a "Welcome to GNOME 3" - e.g. there is the Fedora-specific license acknowledgement screen, and smolt submission screen.

Related to the above: What about third-party modules? Currently in Fedora, smolt-firstboot, system-config-{keyboard,rootpassword}, rhn-setup-gnome all provide firstboot modules. I suppose some of the functionality will be directly integrated, what about the rest?

The tentative design seems to mix system-specific and user-specific decisions (account creation, "location" (that is NOT a substitute for locale, btw.), vs. user-specific online accounts). Isn't there a risk of confusing users' mental model about which decisions are for their account vs. for the whole computer?
