If the average length of a CD is 72min (I know it's longer but bear with
me), this works out at $100 for 6 min (or 28c/sec!)...   I think no track
should exceed 10 minutes, just to stop one player dominating the CD.

How about a "flagship" CD plus a "everyone together", not-as-slick double
TAPE (ie much cheaper) with everyone?  If everybody knew what everyone else
was doing, people would be more willing to form "cliques" of music which
would sit well together and do it themselves.  Hey!  Tape tree!
