from Relengs perspective it doesnt matter what size it is. so long as
it meets the release criteria then its ok. 

Personally i have a serious concern over dropping cd sized media. One
big issue is that the OLPC XO-1 only has 1gb storage for both the OS
and user data. any size increase in the OS reduces the room for user
lists over 2.5 million XOs deployed a large number of which a xo-1 most
of which run fedora.

my other concer is for portions of the world without great
internet access. making everything bigger slows down download time and
increases costs of getting fedora. im honestly not sure what kind of
numbers this would effect
