Just to understand it, what impact would the change have on languages that are not on the image and are traditionally installed online? In particular,
- Would ubiquity still be shown in those languages even if the language packs are not in the image?
- Would these additional languages still be easily installable once there is an Internet connection (during or after the installation)

I had the same remark at first and didn't include it in this
- it was already partially on the iso
- seems like there is a demand for using traditional Ubuntu rather than
the specific Kylin respin
So it seems it's not that much of a change (apart from adding missing
remaining packages for that language) and still worth it.
