You're right. If there's going to be an everything.iso, there is little 
point in having a DVD#2. Those who want to make a full install can do so 
from DVD1 alone. Those who need to transfer all the rpms in one 
convenient verifiable package can use the everything.iso, to be used 
with a dual-layer DVD or USB memory stick, or loop mounted somewhere.
