How so?

700MB cutoff is for CDs. A 1GB cutoff is for USB sticks.

I'm still a bit baffled that a 3.5 MB increase on a 700MB live image
is considered a complete showstopper. That's one git package, for example;
I would hope that creative dependency trimming can find that space.
(Or reorganization of boot images, for example.)
