Even he was a bit vague about that (sometimes I understood 
the large number of kernel packages used as an argument 
for his idea, which seemed to imply that he wants to remove
many of them), I understood that. I wanted to say that the
size of his packages are not too large to be included if 
we find they do something useful.

He didn't want to support all architectures, 
so let's say 50 to 100 MB.

That goes to Robert. 
A cleaner design comes to my mind, which is not much 
for 50-100 MB being reproduced.
