Thank you Marc. I agree with you that the option to create desktop links
should be left to the user and that to provide a default value is simply

Maybe the variable to set the "Create Desktop Shortcuts" check should be
also documented in the "Desktop Shortcuts" section, not only in "Writing
Installation XML Files". It is documented in lowercase as
"desktopshortcutcheckboxenabled" which doesn't work as variables seems to be
case sensitive.
