Isn't the "workstation" class an already well established term and preferable to chose?

Going for "Bittorrent" only for certain spins is a -very- bad idea. "Bittorrent" is blocked in certain academic and probably also enterprise environments. It's very frustrating to sit behind a "firewall" and have the necessary bandwith but no images to download. Even if "Fedora" will increase in size, it won't do that by an order of magnitude but only by a factor of 2 or so. After all, the overwhelming part of download bandwith is provided [voluntarily] by mirror sites, so I do not see a problem here.
Up to now, I have not been able to download any "FC6" respin image because they can only be retrieved via "Bittorrent" .. # !&*#
