The initial beta of last week (10 days ago) indeed did that if you 
selected Latin Modern. The last incarnations will not offer Latin 
Modern as a separate install in texmf.local if you have selected 
TL2004. And if you install a TL2004-based system, the existing Latin 
Modern in texmf.local will be removed,

If you are able to produce a situation with Latin Modern both in 
texmf.tetex and texmf.local I would like to know how you did it.
