Wasting a CD instead of a floppy, whereas the floppy is rewriteable. Of
course there are CD-R/W's, but since you make release on DragonFly
itself and rewriteable support is still lacking in some areas...
That or you do a net install and just need two snapshot floppies (which
is way faster than downloading a full ISO).

Assuming you have a second machine which has all the needed stuff to
make this feasible.

That's something that's useful. Perhaps a more standalone version of
the fixit.flp, more akin to a real bootdisk.
How crude floppies might be they are darn useful and way easier to redo
than burning CDs. Unfortunately one might add.
