so get a bsdmall.com subscription and your credit card will be charged
with each release and you'll get the cd automatically.

This would make the most sense to me if you had a subscription, and you
then had access to download the ISO as soon as it was available. Of
course people will cheat this method, give it to their friends and
co-workers, but that would certainly increase attraction of having a
subscription. But then they could also have one of those one-time-only
downloads by email url.
