I'm sure Wendy McKay, who maintains the pages, will take your  
suggestion into account. The suggestion is reasonable, but ...

The old pages have links to the old MacTeX.dmg and MacTeXtras.dmg  
files, but CTAN mirrors do not keep old copies around when new  
versions appear. Otherwise they'd have gigs and gigs of obsolete files  
on the servers. We updated MacTeX-2007 several times last year.

The links to MacTeX-2008 on the new page will become active in a few
