The answer to the first is another set of questions:

- Do we still have areas of the world where a livecd will work in a
computer but either burning or booting from livedvds or liveusb is
- Do we still want the desktop spin to be the default download option on

As long as those two hold true, the desktop spin must be limited to a
single CD in size.  Note that the first of those questions needs to be
addressed to a wider audience than the desktop team but the second is
within the desktop team's control.
