Can the solution be as simple as including the ten or so most popular
extensions in the package (license-permitting, of course) with an option
at the installation to select the ones you want? Adobe does this (or,
they used to) with Illustrator. It could be part of the "custom install"
options (along the lines of choosing whether or not to install the
ActiveX document reader). If selecting this option as part of the
"custom install" is not the best solution, maybe a simple dialog box at
the beginning: "Select which extensions to install:" with a "SELECT ALL"
and "SELECT NONE" option available.

This is where I believe the marketing team's work will show its value. We may decide to have different targeted versions of LibO for education; business; academic; SOHO; corporate etc. with added value plugins. The delivery of these versions would have to be thought out. Maybe a single disc with different "tab-able" versions that one could pick for the installation.

I would also suggest not to drown the new user with too many new extensions (especially with them showing up in the menu bars) as familiarity of the menus and behaviour as well as MSOffice compatible behaviours will be what sells the LibO distro.
