Maybe there was intentions of eventually providing full featured access to
the DNS server.  Or perhaps it's provided so that those who wish to manually
configure DNS and DHCP with advanced features they can do so without having
to build a custom CD image.

Feel free to remove it from you copy if you need the space.

Because we are wasting space with it? If dnsmasq is not the standard why are
we using it then for DNS instead of bind?

The funny thing is: We are not providing a full featured DNS server but a
full featured DHCP server wich is not fully configurable. We are using an
alternate implementation of a DNS server, dnsmasq, wich can do exactly the
same as we do with the DHCP server.

cheers,
Raffaele
