I think most people install over the net and so only need the CD (DVD) 
to boot and set up sysinstall.    Then there is no swapping of disks
and you get the latest in ports.    So, people tend not to feel the
need for a DVD ISO.

But, if you do not have an adequate internet connection, this becomes 
less practical, unfortunately.
