The current rule is that the CD is added to the sources list when the CD 
is used for the installation of the base system. I agree that adding the 
CD is less usefull when installing from a netinst.
However, we currently cannot distinguish between a netinst CD and a full 
CD in the installation. We hope to add that before Etch, and maybe we 
will change this aspect then too.
