govind:

as regards Sibelius on CD: Unfortunately, due to the nature of the copy protection, this is pretty much unfeasible. But hey, that's the beauty of floppy installation: you can write back to the disc, getting rid of the need for ridiculous keycodes and registration files.

Also, you'd be putting 1.6MB of data on a CD (well, nearer 5MB for all three discs, but the remark stands): What a waste! Unless they were to include the Opus library as well... I digress. Sib7 on CD can't feasibly happen.
