+1 on dropping CD images. I haven't burnt a CD in over 10 years and I
don't believe I have seen a CD only drive in that time. Even with a CD
size image I have burnt them to DVD, I first started this because
transfer speeds of DVD's are faster and nowadays it costs almost the
same to burn a DVD. So I see zero benefit to using CD's and that's
before thinking of reusable USB devices.

I do think there is a benefit to keeping the small boot only image
available that can be used to start/recover a machine that can then
download any data to be installed.
