My $0.02 response here:

Yes, I'm certain SE's want this.  In fact, I've heard them request this
in various ways.  I definitely want to be supportive of the SE's, and
they deserve our attention here.  But I want to make sure that we
understand that a "quick demo deployment" may not be a real or useful
scenario for our customers.   Yes, customers also want to save time and
money, so anything that gets them up and running quickly is meaningful.
But if the "quick deployment" is not a realistic, useful deployment,
then I worry about having it as an available option for customers.

Of course, tools that help SE's to sell the product are always welcome
and serve their and our best interests.  But maybe a "quick demo
deployment" option is something that we should leave out of the
mainstream product if it gets in the way of a productive experience for
the customers.
