I think the big difference is this:

The Live CD has a live environment with the option to install Fedora

The DVD can be used to install a new system, or rescue an existing system

The point I make here is that we just need to be consistent with our
language to our users/contributors when it comes to LiveCD vs

I might suggest wording along these lines:

LiveCD: Boot this Live CD to try out Fedora.  Installation options are
available within the live environment.

InstallDVD: Boot this Installation DVD to install or rescue Fedora.
