Frankly, no it wouldn't. For the common images people will still want
direct downloads anyway. For the less common images, (approximately)
nobody will ever download them, so nobody will ever end up seeding
them either. The main reason that we've cut the number of images is to
save disk space on cdimage and all the mirrors. They've typically got
enough bandwidth.
