The graphical install is started manually, anyway.  You can also boot
the CD with "nox" to get to a terminal.  The reason for the minimal CD
is simple, size.  If you don't plan on doing anything but a stage1
installation, a minimal CD + stage1 tarball is a lot less to download
than a 700MB ISO image.  Basically, you've suggested a capability the CD
can already do.  ;]
