x86_64 binaries are bigger (among other things).

So, you are filling the LiveCD with i686 packeages until the maximum
~700MB, and then do the exact copy with x86_64 packages???
Why don't you do that reverse??? Then, the i686 LiveCD will be ~650MB
and x86_64 will be ~700MB and both will fit CD...

There's a specific package set that's chosen.

Because then all the i386 users will complain about the missing
functionality? It's a losing game any way you look at it. If you
have a x86_64 box that only has a CD drive (unlikely), you can
run the 32-bit CD image.
