I wonder why those images have to be in CD #1 at all. The functionality of
"being able to boot the system" is well served by whatever kernel is
installed by the boot floppies.

If you insist that they must go in CD #1, leaving more popular packages
in CD #2, we could put the less popular kernel-images in CD#2, one at
a time, until TeX fits in CD#1.

For this we would need the most recent popularity contest data, the
one in debian-cd is quote old (from 2001).
