It bugs me when DC does that. I mean, I was happily surprised when DC began collecting the Mike Grell era Green Arrow comics, but disappointed when they stopped as his time with the run did, because that left some 50 issues or so of the ongoing uncollected. Granted, I have them all in issue, but I had a friend who was getting the trades on my recommendation, and so he hit a wall, creating a hole in his collection.

I'm not sure DC really understands their collectors. Just give us an easy way to obtain all of the issues of popular characters and people will buy them. Maybe not enough to print in bulk, but do an archive print on demand collection like WB does with older movies, at least.

That's always frustrating, especially when it comes to older comics. Trying to track down older issues, some of which can be pricey, can turn fun into an ordeal. I wish DC would commit to a method of reprinting, whether it be sequential TPBs, omnibus editions, or facsimiles, to give us complete, uniform runs of Golden/Silver Age runs. However, as Dave pointed out in some thread on this MB, Didio stated that DC doesn't have a complete catalogue of back issues.

^If they were open about that stuff, though, they might be able to get help from private collectors.
