Don't know as I don't have a Workstation subscription either, but the 64-bit multilib Server DVD is 3273MB containing 3432 packages, and the optional channel contains a further 2672 packages (there might be a few errata in there by now so it might actually be a few less than that). Personally I would suggest a 2 DVD set for everything, and a somewhat lighter "Server" DVD as per upstream that has room to grow during subsequent update releases. That combined with the minimal network install ISO image should cover most people's requirements?
