More USB install-images please!

I sometimes install Debian on machines belonging to family and friends.
On my latest install I tried the boot.img.gz on an USB-stick. It failed
halfway trough, complaining about a missing suitable ISO-image. Not
wasting time, I dd'ed the netinstall iso onto the stick and installed.

As far as I know, the debian- is the ONLY one
that can be used on both USB and CD-rom. Why not give
debian- the same functionality???? The
netinstall-image install requires much time on slow lines. 

I HAVE tried dd'ing debian- to a stick. It will
not boot. Didn't expect it to do either. Had to try.
