I've always assumed the bigger cartridge is for black text, and the one the same size as the coloured is for blacks in colour printing.

you may be right, thanks...that would seem to be a good reason..

Can't remember what brand it was but there used to be a printer where you could substitute the colour cartridge with a high capacity black one to supplement the original black cartridge if you didn't intend to print in colour.
