I guess the size of the export really is a question of performance, as
there's only a finite amount of processing power that can be devoted to
the export functionality. If you need such larger chunks, you could try
and download successive bits of the extent you need and paste them
together again, or write a custom script that directly downloads the
relevant tiles. Also, you could try Kosmos as an alternative rendering

The projection issue would be solved by the integration of world files
or geoaware formats as proposed. I guess thats a job for phase two.
