I am also not a great proponent of a substantial reduction of Core. Like

reduced substantially.

There are two things that convince me that shrinking it below the 4CD
size we have now is not worthwhile

1.	As several people pointed out DVD images are becoming the normal
	thing now

2.	Providing we keep the situation where you can download CD#1 and
	do a minimal install the extra CDs are not a drag on broadband
	users. The tools would benefit from some better group understanding
	but thats a separate issue

Hmmm how about what is on CD#1 is CORE and everything else is extras ;)
