While this isn't a done deal, I will say Ubuntu is a broadband OS to
many and especially with Ubuntu Studio we aim at a higher-end systems.
_Usually_ this means more affluent people that also have high-speed
internet connections. The same thinking has led us to only have a DVD.

So that said, people on dial-up are less of a concern. Many have said "I
hate wasting a DVD for 900MB. Why not put more on it?" Language packs
look like a good fit here.

It's really gonna come down to exactly how much bigger it makes the
disk. I won't be concerned with 200MB or so.
