You are missing the point.  We aren't adding Extras to Core to make the distro 
bigger, or to get these Extras packages on media.  We're merging so that the 
entire Fedora community has access to directly contribute (ie write access to 
SCM) to what is the Fedora distribution.  We're still going to make decisions 
about what to put on media and what not to put on media (with the exception 
of the silly EVERYTHING spin that so many people seem to want, and would have 
wanted it to include Extras before).  The whole point of the merger though is 
to get all the software in one place, to allow for things that were 
previously in Core to BuildRequire things that are in Extras without having 
to move them into Core, and to allow the community at large maintain the 
distribution at large.
