Yes, it's exactly that.

the free DVD does not contain anything from nonfree, so radeon fails to 
load until the firmware gets installed.

So we are trying to solve this issue cleanly.
One thing I'm working on is a separate firmware iso to burn (or put 
contents on usb stick) to satisfy this need.

The other option for radeon users is to install using livecds.
