Would it be feasible to use the same (but different than the current one) set
of sizes for all wikis? Would it be feasible to replace the 7 current sizes
with, say, 4 that are in general a bit larger?

I don't see these questions answered anywhere, and I don't have access to the
"restricted mailing list" to check if they were addressed there.
