BIOS / firmware update CD?

Everyone seems to be missing the point.  Other vendors have a single
bootable CD that contains BIOS' and firmware for all their hardware.  On
a single CD!

Benefits:

a) you don't splunk the website trying to find firmware updates, they're
all on the CD.

b) CD boots, probes hardware and installs firmware through a menu
system.  No more wondering if you actually downloaded the right/latest
firmware.

c) red-headed step child hardware stays up to date along with everything
else.
