We're working on a pilot install of Office 365.  We think we have the correct set of applications selected at this point.  What we need help with is what to do later when we need add an additional app to an existing install.  Say we want to add Access for someone.

Do I create a new configure.xml file that just has the lines required to install Access?

<Add SourcePath="\\Server\Share" 
Version="16.0.8201.2193" >
  <Product ID="Access">
      <Language ID="en-us" />

Or do I rerun the ODT and create a new complete configure.xml from top to bottom with the one change being the addition of the application (Access in this example)?  

I would rerun the same "setup.exe /configure configure.xml" command against the target computer no matter which configure.xml file I create.
