Doubtful.  That DVD download is usually used more than once, while all
network installs will always download a whole lot of stuff each time.

What about optionally generate an installation media, at the end of
the install process, containing all packages downloaded? It would be
an interesting feature, would it be useful? How hard would be to
integrate revisor in Anaconda?


Anaconda and first boot have enough issues, adding an attempt to burn the downloaded files might be a bit ridiculous. I wouldn't mind if they cached them all post install in an easy to access way though, and let you then burn it once the machine is up and running. You have a kickstart file already created from the choices you made during install, and all the files should be there to work with.

But doing it integrated in anaconda is probably not such a good idea, installs fail often enough as is.
