Does it mean that 50Mb is all we need?

I used to advocate for 2CD's in terms of free/shareware, but this division
gives two problems: 1) duplication of material 2) doubled cost.
- removing Master/support (~40Mb), since all files in support are
already zipped, and provide it via texlive Web pages
- removing one or two binary sets, and make these accesible as
'extra binary sets' same place?
Would that solve the problem?
