For two reasons:

1. I do not know how to get image from a cd/dvd - I believe by simple
dd-ing it will not work w/ checksum, but some more options should be

2. not for all cd/dvd-s I know checksums or places where I can obtain
it - it is for a bit older Debian and Ubuntu. - For I have noticed that
on their sites the chcksums are gone as soon as new images are uploaded
to the sites. Or there is a archive for the checksums?
