What's wrong with the choice between several GUIs? Why does DragonFly need
a standard GUI? And what are the criterias to select one?

Or do you want to have a GUI on the live/installation CD?

Well, putting a GUI on the Live CD would create a de facto default GUI.

In any case, I'd also like to have a X environment on the Live CD.  We're
modernizing the rest of the system; the interface should at least be up to
date with, say, 1995.

IMHO, putting a GUI on a live CD will just make it more big and heavy. There are many cases when one may need no GUI but need a rather modern but good, fast and stable system. For the server machine or for hardware diagnostic system any GUI will just be a useless ballast.
Sorry for my poor English.
