The problem is how to determine the most important. If someone could come
up with some formula it would help. At the moment my thinking is to move
stection: games and section: graphics to the second CD.

It is possible to separate out Hurd source from sid, but this would only
include the source of installable Hurd packages. Scripts could be
tweaked, but this would only extend the selection to source for which Hurd
binary packages existed.
I have just checked
ftp://ftp.fsn.hu/pub/CDROM-Images/debian-unofficial/sid and while the
binary images are available, there are none for source. Does anyone know
of any site that has sid source?
