everybody who has a x86_64 box would also have a DVD drive anyway but the number of people who have been asking for this seems to make that assumption ineffective.

You still get laptops with 64bit and without DVD drives but with CD-RW. When
the thinkpad exploded thats exactly what I got. So this isn't even an
"old machine" issue - its true now, today and it is causing people to switch
or pick other distributions in the confusion (they LiveCD CD install needs
explaining too and I firmly believe we should go back to rolling a CD set)

The confusion part is very true. You can just go back read the months of discussions in fedora-list after Fedora 7 release to realize that but I don't think anybody making the decision is even subscribed to the user list or watching the forums which helps in sticking to the flawed assumption.

Either drop multilib by default or reduce the size of x86 image even further so that x86_64 even with multilib will fit into a CD (without overburn or anything fancy).
