When running an easy install of a collection, it would be great to be able to expand (for example) the "Essential Collection" and select which modules you want to install, much like you are able to do in the iOS version of Accordance.

One thing you will find is that if you install only part of what you own, you will be 'tripping' over the uninstalled items every time you do an Easy Install.  I have modules that I rarely use, ones that came as part of a package.  I've just got them filed away in my Library in folders at the bottom of the various categories — things like Ancient Versions, Untagged Duplicates, or even Suspect Stuff (things that come from theological perspectives that, in my view, are way off base).  Doing a complete install actually simplifies the updating process and unclutters your Easy Install window.  With the exception of the highly graphical stuff, most of these modules don't take up much room on your drive.

A good suggestion. I can't remember offhand which computer it's on (home Macbook, work iMac, or PC laptop), but I recently deleted the Maps Sampler and now one of my collections keeps popping up as incomplete, even though I have the actual Maps/Atlas module installed now....
