The current way of "warning" the tester that it is oversized is to create a file amidst the huge list of useless file ending in .OVERSIZED.

Something like "Warning: This image is oversized and will not fit onto a standard CDR. You may still use it to test burning to a virtual machine or DVDR, however."
