Mark Williamson has been putting together a 2.0 CD. We're really just 
waiting for the final 2.0 release before putting it up there - most 
folks using the current almost-but-not-quite-done 2.0 beta we expect
to be able to pull the bk repo, or the tar balls and, as you say, put
together a CD themselves is they want to - the only real issue is fitting
enough of an install to be useful, but since 2.0 can just 'drop in' on 
a regular filesystem with all the standard rc scripts, the bootable CD 
will probably be deprecated as a standard way of doing an install.
