Thanks for anticipating my next question! :)

Does it seem correct to all concerned that each release actually
lists all files twice?
There is a torrent for the entire release CD ISO set, and then there
is a completely separate torrent for each CD ISO file. At least that
is what it looks like to me.
Is this correct?
Yes. Many people like to download the whole thing in one torrent. It
does split the aggregate swarm bandwidth, but it doesn't seem to be a
problem in practice.
I just found it odd that that users couldn't just specify the file to
download from the release torrent. It also makes it slightly(read
almost negligible) harder to seed effectively as I would need to
download more than one centralized torrent. Since I use the complete
torrent for my purposes, I can only assist the folks who also download
the entire torrent.
