    the plan is to offer a Super TeX Live, on DVD, 
    and a TeX Live Lite, on CD. thats the best I can come
    up with.

Doesn't sound bad to me.

One other thought -- this may be heretical, but does anyone actually use
the "live" part of TL?  I know that I at least have always simply copied
the whole thing to my disk.  CD is too slow and inconvenient.

If we had only an installable system, everything could be compressed and
a lot more would fit.
