Ahh, yes, my ignorant. I just found explaination in
"Download CD/DVD images using HTTP or FTP. Due to space and bandwidth
constraints, only very few mirrors are able to supply direct HTTP/FTP
download links. These sites may use bandwidth throttling, downloads
can be quite slow. Please use jigdo or bittorrent instead. DVD images
are only available for some architectures and not on all mirrors."
But not everyone get download URL from there when they want debian
ISO images. So I think that README file in debian-cd/ mirror should
be there for explain this to users.
