Really it is just adding the base and updates URLs; that's all that is

Doubtful.  That DVD download is usually used more than once, while all
network installs will always download a whole lot of stuff each time.

Reasonable proxy behavior would mostly fix that. But, it's hard to beat an rsync or bitorrent download of an image to an nfs-exported directory followed by an nfs install.
