I am not with Fedora and can not answer your "Why not?". But I would guess
it is drive space, plus mirror complaints, and no time.  ;-)


The only place that I know of for Fedora CD's is here.

Fedora Unity
http://spins.fedoraunity.org/

This site uses jigdo and (I have not done this but I would bet it would
work) jigdo would read *your* DVD, download the updated packages, and make
the CD's from the updates and the unchanged packages from your DVD. These
CDs, should this work, would be up-to-date as of Dec 18, 2007.

I have done a DVD to DVD update and jigdo works quite well.
