It is, in fact, utterly unthinkable. "Hi, I hear Debian just did a release! Congrats!" "Hey, thanks!" "So, I've got a new laptop here, got a CD I can use to install it?" "No." The installer doesn't have to be particularly great, but it has to exist and work. Upgrading from previous versions is not an acceptable answer, since previous versions are not guaranteed to be available, and aren't guaranteed to boot on new hardware.
