Test and pre kernels could be kept in sid exclusively.
kernel-source-2.4.20 is needed for m68k, keep that on some cd.
And e.g. kernel-image-2.4.20-amiga.
For non i386 the list of kernels differs widely between archs.

The first CD should have only one version, the one used in D-I, but as
many flavours as possible without overcrowding. All other versions
could be on later CDs. People might want a 2.2.x kernel or need a
2.6.0 kernel for their hardware.
