My suggestions ,
#> release , desktop-live iso for xfce , kde , gnome and mate.
#> release , community desktop-live iso for i3 , openbox and awesom.
#> add choose-init option to desktop-live  installer.
#> add one click option to download iso on devuan.org/get-devuan .

Feel free to prepare those isos and submit them to Devuan for inclusion.

The desktop-live installer - refractainstaller - rsyncs the running live system.  It cannot add anything directly during installation.  You could install another init option in the live-environment and then install the modified version.  But if switching init requires a reboot that won't work.  This from the readme:

Refracta Installer will install the operating system to hard drive from
a running live-CD or live-USB session. The running system will be copied
exactly - any changes you make to the running system, including desktop
preferences, configuration changes, or added software will be copied to
the installed system.

As to the get-devuan page . . . there is no one-size-fits-all iso.  Devuan is about CHOICE.

There is a point in the installer, right before it installs the bootloader, where you could chroot into the installed system and make changes (such as installing openrc.) I haven't tried it, but it should work.

Re: new desktop-live iso

I understand newcomers will download the installer-iso without a second thought because most of them come from Debian. In my opinion, live ISOs offer more possibilities for those who like to customize their installation. Also, the installation process is quicker.

Do you plan on releasing new regular installer-isos in the future?
