DVD drives aren't always available on server systems as well as on
many laptops and workstations you've to deal with in rescue
scenarios. On the other hand we've already 3 different flavours, all
of them as 32bit and 64bit version available. Adding another flavour
which provides additional software would also increase the work with
regards to packaging, testing and distribution (mirror, sources).

So no, I don't plan a DVD version right now.
