I don't want to have to download all of extras just to get the  
convenience of a DVD install (no disk swapping) - especially since in a  
month or so, a good portion of those extras will have updates that  
would need to be individually downloaded anyway.

Most of extras I don't use - I would rather download a smaller install  
iso and just yum install the extras that I do use.
