The first is the extra bandwith of downloading an 8.3GB image. (I think this may be why the current image does not fill a single layer DVD.) This could get to be a problem for the mirrors hosting the images, as well as people with limited bandwith or download limits. Another problem is the cost of a DL DVD RW disk. While this would not be a problem for people like me that host the image on a local server instead of burning it to a DVD, but I can see it be a problem for some people. I could see this type of image from places that ship Fedora DVDs. The cost difference between a SL and DL DVD should not be that great, especially compared to the shipping/handling charges.
