They don't need to since they're only secondary source, but it would

Update from the network and your fine and use a current system. No problem.

In that case one can't sell silver Debian CD's. I'm sorry, if that
would be the case, a Debian CD is somewhat unsellable.

cdimages.debian.org as well, so distributors have an easy job
It's time to close the windows.
