No. But I would consider it a regression to have to download a
complete install just to get boot media.
Are you claiming any regression is not acceptable,
even if there is no user on it?

Even if there is a user, it's a completely acceptable regression
to wait an extra few minutes to download an image smaller than
YouTube video nowadays.

I use installer-without-images all the time. Easily 95% of my installs are over the network. I would also argue that the download time is not insignificant even today.
