I'm not sure what do you mean janny =) but in general you don't
need to load KDE nor are you forced to install the live image :)

All we are forced to do is to have an *default* install.

Example : 

Do a live CD with say ede ( or some such foo mini DE ) stripped , with only
what one would need to start it ( eg: minimal X , network things , minimal libs to run that etc )

Your LiveCD is <200MB in this case. For the rest ( 500MB++ ) you could have in theory the FPM's 
for the default install.

Anyway I'm not sure I'm really an fan of this but is possible :)
