No, you didn't miss anything. I don't have any DVD9 of 10.1 yet (but it
was available SUSE-internally AFAIK).

I asked AJ to send me the INDEX.gz of different media (including DVD9)
to be able to do some comparison. The result was a small script to
automate the comparison ;-) and 4 bugreports (two of them already
fixed, the two below are still open/unclear).

BTW: There were some FTP-only packages in 10.0 already, but the list was
shorter - http://suse-linux-faq.koehntopp.de/q/q-suse100-ftponly.html
(headlines in german, but the package list should be understandable for
everybody ;-)

In general, yes - but note that not all packages in Extra are on CD6 and
therefore probably not on DVD5 also. OTOH, some packages are on CD6,
but not in Extra...
