Netflix changing 2-disc policy?

I checked the site fo the 2disc Around the World in 80 Days and Neflix says that both discs will be shipped simultaneously. The same was found under Once Upon a Time in America, but not for Tokyo Story or Once Upon a Time in the West. This would be a mighty fine addition to their program and it doesn't appear that you would be charged as having 2 discs out.

The reason for sending both Around the World disc should be because the movie spans two discs (as did Gangs of NY). I don't think this is a change in policy. They just want to get you the complete movie rather than, say, part 2 first.

It's been a while since I've rented any 2-disc movies, but their policy seemed somewhat random. For example, I received both Pearl Harbor discs togther, but Lawrence of Arabia and Godfather 2 were seperate rentals.
