That "feature" is not limited to the cd version. It is also in the netinst version and the dvd versions. It would be nice if people intuitively understood that the "base system" was not going to meet their expectations of a minimal install, which includes a desktop environment, but noobs don't understand that. Equally nice would be an "advanced installation" option to only do a base system installation.  Making the selection of a mirror and desktop environment an unskippable part of the installation, unless you chose that advanced "base system" would be very user friendly, particularly for noobs.
