I think what they mean is, when you boot the cd, you should have the 
option to do a check on it (while booted).
checking a sum on the iso not sufficient: your cd might get 
dirty/scratched after burning it.
I suggest if you want this you make a ticket for us.  (right now i 
wouldn't have a clue on how to implement it though)
