About 1st debian CD


I think 1st debian CD is very important for all users, especially for beginners and should not contain duplicates like now:

See for example /pool/main/k - there are about 130MB of various kernel-images:
/kernel-image-2.2.20-i386 - ~9MB /kernel-image-2.2.20-reiserfs-i386 - ~2MB
/kernel-image-2.2.20-udma100-ext3-i386	- ~5MB
/kernel-image-2.4.16-i386 - ~58MB !!!
/kernel-image-2.4.18-i386		- ~52MB
/kernel-image-2.4.18-i386bf		- ~6MB

Who needs 130MB of various kernel-images in 1st CD ???
I understand - kernel 2.2.20 and 2.2.18 are really usefull, but what about 2.4.16 ? How many users will use kernel-image-2.4.16-i386 when there are newer version - kernel-image-2.4.18-i386 ?
We shoult remove ar least kernel-image-2.4.16-i386, then x-window-system
(xserver-xfree86, xserver-common, xfonts-base, xfonts-100dpi, xfonts-75dpi) will fit in 1st CD without problems.

In previous prelelease (debian-30pre1-i386-binary-1_NONUS.iso) almost all x-window-system packages were in the 1st CD, why in pre2 most X packages are moved in second CD ?
