The netinst doesn't expect that you'll use any other medium other than
the 'Net to continue to install.

The DVD could be used in a standalone mode with no network access: in that
case a deb cdrom entry is useful (though latterly you get warning messages
about apt-secure when you try ot use it).

The deb cdrom entry is deliberate, I think - though it should probably 
come commented out.
