This does not look like a great argument: when your internet access is 
really slow then you either download one image and share it between user 
(and then it does not matter if it is a CD or DVD, since the incremental 
cost per user is negligible), or you just download the netinstall image 
to minimize the number of bytes you need to download from the network to 
what you strictly need (yes, I did a few modem netinstalls...).
