I agree - it is usually unnecessary. I usually pull off the vmlinuz and initrd 
from the DVD and boot them directly out of grub for installing. Then I 
usually do a network install from another computer which has the image. You 
could also do a local hard drive install if you have enough space on a 
non-root partition to hold the DVD .iso image.

 I in fact do installs this way even when I have a CD or a DVD - its faster.
