It would be misnomer definitely which is why we never call it a Live CD 
anywhere in our content. We have called them Live images and the FAQ I 
pointed out has the sizes listed and the reasons why they differ in 
sizes. I am sorry if something misled you otherwise. Point it out and we 
will fix it,

You can do a network or hard disk based installation with the small 
boot/rescue images. Check out the installation guide at 
http://docs.fedoraproject.org for details.
