What do you mean when you say it "will only clutter the space"?
By this I mean to say that if we give 4 gb pre-installed stuff then menu and workspace will be too cluttered. It will be hard to find the application you want to work upon.
 
It will be on
the DVD anyway, either preinstalled or as RPMs.
Yes, It will be on DVD but uninstalled packages will not show on main menu.
 
What makes you say it will
confuse the user? Have you actually tried giving users two DVDs, one with
software preinstalled and one with RPMs in local repo and asking which they
find less confusing or are you just guessing?
A few months ago a local LUG here created a custom Live DVD from a mainstream Linux (wasn't fedora). The size was about 2gb. Although regular users managed but feedback from newbies wasn't so positive regarding the overall ease of use.
