Look at the number of complaints we are getting about not releasing
regular CD images or that live images aren't CD size for x86_64.
Besides more granularity in packages is a good thing to have anyway
if Fedora has to retain it's goal of being a good foundation to build
things for OLPC or other resource constrained systems.

And at the same time, hugely granular packages lead to a horrible user
experience, where none of the software works as advertised because you
forgot to install the 50 addon packages to get the functionality you
wanted.

There are ways to solve this. Install them by default. Use meta packages, comps groups. We also seem to be only mainstream RPM based distribution not using soft dependencies.

CD sized optical media has been obsoleted.  Some parts of the world
just hasn't noticed yet.

It is question of what is available and affordable. The difference between CD drives/media and DVD drives/media is still pretty high in some regions.
