The "gnome" metapackage is for an overblown desktop with all options.
The official GNOME release is in the "gnome-desktop-environment"
package. To get numbers, maybe you should look at sid as there are some
changes with GNOME 2.6.

Maybe the kernel images? I remember they can be pretty big...

Still, making d-i+standard less than 350 MB should be enough to make the
whole fit in a 700MB CD. It should be possible to reduce that base size
somehow (otherwise there is something broken here).
