In I can clearly see that 
there are two files that end with .OVERSIZED; I guess the capitalization 
is to draw attention to the fact. You could also check for the presence 
of the file with a script to determine whether a particular day's image 
is oversized or not.

You may want to file a bug in the ubuntu-cdimage product at Launchpad if 
you feel the warning should be in some other form and/or made more explicit.

Even though a VM isn't the ideal way to test, it's usable for many 
testing cases, and the fact that oversized images are still usable in a 
VM should be enough of a reason to keep building them.
