+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.

But some people clearly do want that, and this is trivially fixable by dropping the toolchain from disc1 and leaving it on the DVD image. So let's do that.
