Bad idea:
- bittorrent servers are not so availlable, espacially several years
  after the release
- iso not availlable on mirror will bother people making their private
  mirror for internal use
- many people cannot use bittorent (my own case at work, university
  filter it).

I am not against providing ISO using bittorent, but it cannot be the
only way to get it.
