Correct, but I miss one (IMO) important point in the summary.

These netinsts can also be used *in combination with* the full CD/DVD sets 
to install for example the desktop task completely from CD (without using a 
mirror). This is something that is not possible with "normal" netinst CDs.
That is why I describe the "etchnhalf" netinst as "CD 0 of the full set".
