I think cost would have been the main barrier anyway.  My rough checks have showed USB alternatives to hold 2-4GB is at least 10-20x cost of DVD.  (say $25 vs $2) Maybe someone can find a better supplier, but I did check a few places a while back.  It might have been that I was only looking for ones with OSGeo branding on them though too.
