I am actually wondering about this.

The sizes of the mscorlib assemblies are as follows:

1.0 		2.0M
2.0		2.5M
Silverlight 	2.1M

It seems that you guys could move to the Silverlight profile and not
increase your footprint very much.   And since you guys are also using
the linker you would not be carrying a lot of extra cruft that you do
not need.

It would be useful for me to understand what reasons might prevent you
from adopting the Silverlight profile.

And in your case, it seems that you guys want to stick to 2.4 and the
1.0 profile would continue to be supported there.
