TeXLiveMTS-2007 is a subset of TeXLive-2007, so it is not surprising
that some things in the full version are missing from it. The mactex  
install package on the
DVD will install the full TeXLive-2007.

The NewPackages page is experimental until TeXLive-2007 is officially
released. Although decisions haven't been made for sure, I suspect  
that after
the release we will put just two distributions on the official mactex  
page:
gwTeX and the full TeXLive-2007.
