No OpenOffice in Fedora 9 Beta Live CD?!?

Description of problem:
It seems even with the consolidation of dictionaries in Fedora 9, it still does
not have OpenOffice.org included in the GNOME live CD for i386. Other
distributions have been including OpenOffice.org even with languages in Live CDs
for years now. For example, Ubuntu has always included OpenOffice.org in its
Desktop GNOME Live CD. It's even installable and has language selection! Why
can't Fedora do the same thing? I hope this is something that can be resolved....
A live image with our current selection of packages but OOo switched in place of
abiword + gnumeric runs about 800 megs (I actually looked at this today for
other reasons). So it's not really feasible to add without nuking a lot of
stuff. As for other distros -- different tradeoffs are made in terms of
hardware support, language support, fonts, etc
