It would be nice if it were possible.  I fear that the changes between
releases would make this difficult though.  Packages are put on a disk
because of size limits and demand/importance.  New packages and spliting
packages are just two more variables.  If we try to guarantee that the
current debian-cd scripts support slink, potato, and whatever else comes
up, each script will get even more complicated for a smaller gain.

Sorry for the negative input,
