Will main fit on one CD?

Will main fit on one CD? 

I have watched all the talk about fitting packages on the CDs and I do not
understand whether main will fit on one CD if so would this arrangment not
be best

CD 1: Main
CD 2: Contrib, X11 Source, indices, tools, maybe include experimental
      Extra stuff like netscape docs, gimp manual,
      snapshoots of popular free web sites - debain, gnu, fsf, gnome, gimp
      howabout loads of enlightenment themes (only ones passing the debian
      guide lines) or had they ought to be .deb files? 
CD 3: Source minus X11

Is this like what is planned or am I off my head or does main not fit on one

With this arrangment you could do an install with cd 1, play with it for a
while and if you decided that you must have stuff of contrib install it of
CD 2. (my thinking being contrib is bad because not total free software - is
that view wrong?)
