Are you talking about an after-installation wizard or something similar,  
aren't you?

This means that AOOo wouldn't be a ready-to-use product just after the  
installation. That's fine for individual installations.

However, what about network installations?

I think many IT admins *really* don't like users' installation of  
add-ons... ;-)

Wouldn't it be better to have such procedure directly included into the  
installation of the application?

There would be 2 options:

a) a normal installation (plain vanilla AOOo);

b) a custom Installation (vanilla AOOo + selected and downloadable  
dictionaries, templates, everything else).

Just my 2 cents.
