I wonder if all the updates you've missed will be made live into a sort of virtual service pack, so it's still only one download.

i'm sure there'll be cumulative packages (to be honest i think the terminology 'service pack' will be around just for the sake of the press and users who are used to it) but anyone who is a hardcore tester/rig builder or just a simple idiot and needs to reinstall windows frequently should be able to use WAIK and make an own ISO
