Are there any plans to drop direct download for more popular archs?

Serving 50 cd for i386, 10 DVD,
and people who downloads them all for no particular reason,
can be some kind of problem i guess...
This will also make more people use jidgo and bittorent.
It will also lower load on server, thus delivering important CDs and DVD
(just first CDs and DVDs) faster to the end users, as well
improve rsync speed and space consideration, thus makeing
possible to create cd mirrors by more people.

Was anybody analysing logs of cd mirrors?
