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.
