I can see a couple of problems with this. 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.
