I would agree, and humbly suggest that we start brainstorming on  
better names for installation profile.  Some suggestions: (some have  
been made already)-

Distribution  (or some variation of distros) seems like a close fit  
but also implies the software as

Configuration bundles

Installation Suites

Configuration wizards

Install Kits


Not attached to any of these but trying to start some solutions  
brainstorming.... ;)
