My idea is to have debian-cd uses a kind of sources.list file much like
APT ... this way you can generate CD with packages coming from several
sources. A system similar to apt_preferences may be needed to resolve
conflicts when a package is available on several sources...

But imho, that's the main point of using beeing able to download package
instead of using a local mirror. So I'm still completely in favor of a
rewrite so that debian-cd can download the required packages.
