Hey 2099net, I have alread read your review some time ago. I agree with most of your points, but I won't deny I am very happy to have this nice set.
First of all, I just had the "limited issue" version of "Peter Pan", so I don't mind if they borrowed most of the bonus features from the previous SE. Since I had never seen them before, neither have the special DVD, it was a good treat. The audio comentary is quite enjoyable, and the making of is short but very informative.
Yeah, I agree with your point that the galleries should be bigger, but let's consider the fact that this edition was made without the supervision of "the big guys" who make the CEs in the USA (I think...). So, the only source material they had to look at was the original DVD and the laserdisc - and they borrowed material from both.
IMO, although this may be one of the weakest Disney CEs, as you said, we are very luck they released it - after all, we don't know when is the Platinum edition going to be released.
And we also have to consider the fact that some extras may not be included on the PE DVD - for example, I don't know if Disney is going to obtain the rights to release the 1924 film, since it was already released on DVD in the States by some other company (Paramount?). We also don't know if the (great) "Nine Old Men" featurette is going to be included, since it doesn't specifically talk about "Peter Pan".
Maybe if you already have the SE, this 2-disc French edition isn't really worth the price - but let's face it: 2-disc sets are so much better than standard releases, even if they aren't that different from one another.
