kernel on boot floppies

I was just looking at the kernel config for the bf-2.4 floppies today
and I was wondering something.  Why does the kernel have so much?  I
would think that it would be pared down to the point where everything
non-essential for the install would be removed.  That would mean that
there would be no sound, much of the USB stuff would be removed, a lot
of the net filter and fire wall stuff could be removed and such.  This
would reduce the size of the boot floppies and then a real kernel could
be downloaded and installed after the network was brought up.  This
sounds a lot more sane.  Is there any reason for the current
