This isn't vast overspecification. It's better described as a minimum

As far as the CD-ROM argument goes, it's not that big of a deal.
It actually covers quite a few scenarios that could arise. Staff
could probably figure out on their own if a CD-ROM made sense, but
there's no harm in saying "else...CD-ROM".
