I think it depends highly on your perception of what small / medium / large here means. Is a small CMS a personal Wordpress blog or one-off brochure-ware site? Plone isn't very competitive in that scale unless you have already invested in Plone. Looking at the projects we do over here, we have anything from what we call small 10 to 50 hours projects, medium sized 50 - 250 hour projects and numerous large projects that exceed that scale. Our largest project right now is a multi-year project soon going to hit 8000 development hours, an intranet for an international company with about 5000 logged in users. Doing a project of that scale with an essentially 10 man company next to other stuff isn't easy and has some challenges. But looking at those numbers I find it quite hard to judge what constitutes a small or large project and how that relates to "what the big boys" do.
