I've seen screenshots of around 25GB available on the internal sdcard on stock ROM. Rooting and removing bloatware doesn't open a single byte of space for the user to use as they see fit. Bloat is stored in system partition and all user information is in the data partition. You can remove every single app that Samsung and your carrier puts on the phone and you won't free up any space at all. The sdcard has to be partitioned so that just enough space for the ROM is in system and the rest gets allocated for data. Most developers do not want to touch partitioning (one false move and phone is hard bricked), so the space goes wasted.
I'm using Vanir ROM on my VZN SGS4 (BLAZING fast ROM, btw). Notice that nearly 2GB of free space is just sitting there waiting for more apps...
