This is probably the solution at this point for the 'Full' DVD. In the 
interim, older machines such as this should just use the 'Minimal' DVD, 
since it fits on single-layer nicely.  (I hear or read single-density 
and think FM encoding, 128 bytes per sector, 77-track IBM 3740 format 8 
inch floppies......which are still in use in certain places...)  Same 
for 8.x or 8 Stream -- oh, wait, there is no 'Minimal' ISO, so net 
install or USB is it, can't use optical media at all.

You're right; we're rabbit-holing.  Being at a non-profit, I have to 
rabbit hole a lot, since I tend to use much older hardware than 'normal.'
