Like the one already present at http://www.debian.org/CD/http-ftp/ ?
« The first CD/DVD disk contains all the files necessary to install a standard
Debian system.  To avoid needless downloads, please do not download other CD or
DVD image files unless you know that you need packages on them. » 

However, this message could be made available at
http://www.debian.org/releases/stable/debian-installer/ too or emphasized.

Could you please tell us on which precise page/url you think this information lacks ?
