No, as that's the 'convenience' use case, which is less important than
the 'essential' use case. What we need to identify is the stuff that
offline users really need/want access to. The 'convenience' use case
comes second; that's the stuff for people who could download it from
repos, but might save a bit of time/bandwidth if it's on the DVD.
