/system is 999424 blocks, and /cache is 678016 blocks

Why such big partitions are allocated for these? It feels quite wasting.
How is the free space on /system? I hardly can believe that all of that 1G space is really needed.

(I'm contemplating buying a Moto G. First I thought that the 8G version will be enough. But after seeing the partition layout, it seems that I'll need the 16G.
Now I have an SGS I9000 8G, but curiously it does have more storage than the Moto G.
Moto G: 5.52G for all data.
SGS: 1.89G + 5.78G = 7.67G combined)

There is currently like 370MB free in system. But that's not too bad, gives room to play when updates arrive...

Can someone post the layout and sizes of a GPE device? I compared the gpt.bin file from the UK retail firmware package with the one from the GPE pack and there are some differences in the partition order and I want to check the sizes and starting/ending blocks as well.

It would be nice to find a way to repartition the Moto G as there is a lot of space wasted inside...

GPE firmware image flashed on UK XT1032. Should be the same as retail GPE?
