I'm not sure what the size difference is, but it's definitely legal to do this (provided you get the "right" redistributable installer).

I usually use this approach, but that's partly because I've been bitten by merge modules in particular (and MSI in general) so many times that I no longer use either of them.

It's also possible to install the runtime as a local assembly, such that it can't affect any other applications but can still remain dynamically linked to everything in your own application. The downside of this is that it doesn't get Microsoft security patches via Windows Update or other application installations any more -- but then some people might regard that as an upside.
