are debugging symbols needed to be included?

are there any policy on including dbg packages in iso images? i dont it should be expected that users has immediate interest in said packages, unless im missing something. debian also asks the user permission to send to the developers which packages one installs, so it can be sorted in the images.

what i propose is that dbg and non-dbg packages be separated, say, the former are contained in DVDs 6-13 and the later, contained in DVDs 1-5, similar division being done to images of different sizes. the main benefit is that "common" users (non-developers) would only download the first few images, instead of downloading the entire image set.
