Dumb(?) question about not needing a partial mirror

I see that debian-cd already uses an alternate apt configuration as part 
of the build process already.  Why not simply use yet another 
configuration to actually grab the required debs.  I have a small script 
that moves a set of debs from a directory into the proper pool 
directory tree.  I can post it if it of interest.

Or is there something else missing/needed so that the user doesn't need 
a debian mirror on his/her hard drive.

Currently I just feed apt the list of packages I want and it 
automagically downloads them (Download-Only "true"), I put them into my 
personal pool, apt-ftparchive and then run debian-cd.
