Debian docker image is smaller than Oracle Linux 7

From Oracle Developers Blog,
We've just introduced a new base Oracle Linux 7-slim Docker image that's a minuscule 114MB. Ok, so it's not quite as small as Alpine, but it's now the smallest base image of any of the major distributions. Check out the numbers in the graph to see just how small.
It's not fair, Oracle. You talked about -slim image for Oracle Linux, then you should do for other distros, too.
$ sudo docker image ls
REPOSITORY          TAG                 IMAGE ID            CREATED             SIZE
debian              jessie-slim         232f5cd0c765        2 days ago          80 MB
debian              jessie              978d85d02b87        2 days ago          123 MB
oraclelinux         7-slim              f005b5220b05        8 days ago          114 MB
Debian's jessie-slim image is 80MB, smaller than oraclelinux 7-slim image.

And, we're going to go Debian 9 "Stretch"
debian              stretch-slim        02ee50628785        2 days ago          57.1 MB
debian              stretch             6f4d77d39d73        2 days ago          100 MB
It's smaller than Oracle's -slim image by default, and 1/2 size for -slim image. Nice, isn't it? :)
