We currently have an 80-ish GB database but we really don't need 8GB of RAM. It would be awesome if we could use a 4GB server and just add more disc space
Any update on this?

Strongly support this. Not all use-cases are I/O intensive enough to justify an upgrade in the higher tiers. Sometimes more indexing is enoguh, which of course requires more disk space. I understand the complexity of having volumes attached/detached from the database cluster, though I can imagine this being implemented with tablespaces (at least in Postgres)
I client mine just declined Digital Ocean because he needed 1TB disk but only 8GB ram.
