1) Laptops/netbooks without a optical drive at all are quite common too.
2) Why would you first create the iso? Waste of time.
3) I used to burn a lot of DVDs but I haven't burned one for at least 2
   years now. Seems to be dying out. Somehow it is usb sticks or drives now
   where people used to burn DVDs before.
4) Surely the software lets you store the iso somewhere else too.
