Most probably. Maybe the certificate is not so expensive, but what
happens if TL is installed via net? Will the executables downloaded by
install-tl.bat work or they will just require leaving the S mode one
step later? In such a case the huge install files will have to be made
available via MS Store, i.e. everybody will have to download 4GB even
if he/she wants just plain withou documentation because th SSD in a
notebook does not have so much free space. I do not know...
