That would be an interesting approach and a good alternative to using installer: Ship a single vanilla Eclipse product, and have a "your Eclipse top-ins" wizard opening p2-director on the release train + Market Place so that end-users could decide what they want to install. The basics of an IDE configurations (dev language, frameworks, SCM, Mylyn & trackers...) could have a dedicated page.
