Personally, I think it would be cool if each Fedora release (perhaps 
even starting with the upcoming F7) had an official set of CD/DVD media 
cover images (one image per iso).  And, not only would it look good, it 
might help mitigate some of the harassment that some people get with 
Fedora looking like something "downloaded off the 'net".

Even cooler if they use the specific release artwork... especially since 
the Fedora releases have had some pretty cool stuff.
