I disagree on that: Using an USB image is the most non-invasive and
cheapest way, to run those tests. They allow modifying something and
rebooting, which is a real advantage in test cases IMO. 
Also USB devices are common nowadays - tools to convert cd images to usb
media are not (not every possible tester runs fedora yet).
If we really care about that little extra space we should provide USB
images and show how to convert them to cd/dvd images.
