Too big CD image (Lubuntu 14.04.1, 64-bit)

I downloaded the CD (supposedly CD...) image for Lubuntu 14.04.1, 64-bit, but it turned out that the file is too big for a standard 700MB CD. This is the file I got:

Name: lubuntu-14.04.1-desktop-amd64.iso

Size: 740294656 bytes

MD5 checksum: 4a6555869fbbe11fa6a17f83be046455

I wonder what the root cause of this problem is... Are there different standards in CD sizes or did someone just forget to check the image fits on a CD?

And by the way, it seems that the MD5 checksums for 14.04.1 images have not been put on the web pages (yet).

Thanks in advance for taking care of these issues.
