That's too many chars for a Volume ID, so it has to be a bit more terse.  
Perhaps the isos could be named that, but I don't want () in iso names.

We are discriminatory by nature.  We choose what we want in our package 
collections, we choose what we want on our isos.  Its no mystery that Fedora 
is a Gnome centric distribution, and it should be no surprise that the Fedora 
Desktop spin is Gnome based.  What community folks choose to name their spins 
is of not much concern, so long as it makes sense for that spin and doesn't 
trample any trademarks.  Should we go down the route of Fedora Desktop 
(GNOME/Firefox/evince/OpenOffice.org/gaim/compiz/emacs edition)?
