I'd say just go for the liveDVD and not worry about the CD at all. We
would still be releasing the basic CD version, but I've always also
wanted to release a DVD version that included the full source tree
(for posterity) and as many packages as it is possible to stuff in
there, possibly even pre-installed and ready to run.
Even with compression there are serious limits to what can be stuffed
onto a Live CD, and I don't think it is really worth the effort for
an 'X' edition.
This would also create a good distinction between the base CD and the
X edition. People would know that the 'X' edition was DVD-only and
had just about everything in it.
