I must say that I too am a little ticked off about it being released primarily through BT. Not everyone has access to BT easily and in these cases a direct download is much much easier. In my case BT has been lumped in with P2P sharing on the PacketShaper. Basically you can't even use BT as the speeds you get are next to none (we're talking 1-2 k/s if that). I am hoping that someone off campus will grab it quickly and throw it on the campus DC hub though (Nothing like 5-6MB/s transfers from across campus). If this doesn't happen though I will be penalized speed wise because of their decision. Guess I will just have to hope and pray that I can get my hands on it through alternative channels.
No BT for me at school, but we do have a lovely DC hub like you mentioned. I suppose that's my only option in this case.
