It's good PR to have Mate and Cinnamon, another question is - with 
Gnome Classic session - wouldn't be better to point our users to it now?

But I tend to agree with trend - aim on users with DVDs, developers are
usually able to bring stuff for theirs development needs (and there are
much more options to select the right set than desktops). So count me
+1 to remove it.

See my comment - Ambassadors can't confirm that - we do not distribute
it any more. One more reason I forgot to mention: it's cheaper to produce
more Multi Live DVDs - we get discount based on pieces in batch.
