Yes, business card ISOs are problematic for "Testing", but they
are useful for "Stable".  If we drop them for "Testing" we will
never have them working when next "Stable" is ready.

Also, many people have local (partial) mirrors of Debian, e.g.
in a company or in university.  If people create the mirror
and download a matching business card ISO, everything is fine.

So, please don't drop the business card ISOs.
