The "Everthing" repository is the merger of Core and Extras. No Fedora
release provided the packages from Fedora Extras in iso format. The
iso images have always been the "Core" packages so what you referenced
has no merit. Karl and I are comparing the F7 iso images to previous
releases. For example in FC5 and F6 you could get the same packages on
multiple CD-ROMs as on DVD. There is no equivalent for F7.
