Can I suggest that MacTeX Extras be done differently? 

Once you have the programs you want from it, it does not make sense to download it again - all you want to do is keep the programs you are interested in up-to-date. On the other hand, if something is added to it, you may wish to now.

I'd suggest a much better way for MacTeX Extras to be done is as a list of links to where software can be obtained, with a short description of what each one is and why relevant to TeXing. Users can then click on those links as desired to fetch the actual files.

That way, nobody downloads stuff they don't need.

Best wishes
