On the other hand, one can see those projects as "orphans" willing to
have new promoters.

Having them at the Live DVD would help to spread the word about those
projects that still make sense and need new blood (and for me Atlas
Styler at least makes a lot of sense).

My 2cts from a (sad) user of Atlas Styler.
