So you'd just rather not have it?
I agree that a DVD of what you've suggested would be amazing and I'd pay a lot of money for it.
But I disagree with your opinion of this DVD. I found it to be an EXCELLENT bonus item. Sure, I could go watch the movies. All 6 of them, 12+ hours of time. Or I could pop in a 30-minute DVD with excellent editing and great sound. For the rest of my life, I now have a microcosm of my absolute favorite music set against the feelings and characters the music represents. Seems like a no-brainer to me. I really, really, really enjoy this DVD.
