You can of course also set up a local mirror on your own network and use 
that: no internet connection required during installation.

The basic reason that there is no purely CD-based installation for S/390 
is that there is just no-one that has done the work to support it.

The S/390 port in Debian is kept alive by a depressingly small number of 
people. If you want to see additional functionality like this, new people 
will need to step in and start helping out.
