Even though they do technically still fit on a CD, you may want to consider 
excluding the following packages as well, as including them essentially 
means having roughly 4 CD images dedicated to 9 packages.

534777750 vtk-doc_5.2.1-11_all.deb
395642608 root-system-doc_5.24.00-1_all.deb
357422076 sauerbraten-data_0.0.20090504-1_all.deb
306308472 openarena-data_0.8.1-2_all.deb
250166552 fgfs-base_1.9.0-1_all.deb
235440078 kwwidgets-doc_1.0.0~cvs20090825-2_all.deb
220393788 alien-arena-data_7.0-1_all.deb
211831974 fgfs-base_1.0.0-2_all.deb
206728944 ember-media_0.5.7-1_all.deb

The selection was size >200000000 from:
.../debian/pool$ ls -lR | grep "\.deb$" | awk '{print $5 " " $8}' | \
			sort -rn | head -n 25
