When we first started distributing the iso images, we had a problem with
people downloading them when that is not what they wanted. Thus, the
wording above. Also, since bandwidth is donated, we need to be careful
that we don't exceed the good will of our sponsors.
With the new (well it's existed for a few years now) set of pages on
cdimage.d.o that preface the download page maybe the first item isn't a
concern. The issue of bandwidth should be looked into, though, before
we make the links more obvious.
