Doing that is not really an option, not only because all Ubuntu images
are manually tested by the QA team (some automated tests are also done)
and would then require a lot more testers to cover all test cases on all
the generated images but you'd also need a lot more space on
releases.ubuntu.com that we don't have and won't have (mirroring issue
IIRC).

Sorry for being so negative but multiple ISO images are really not a
good idea :)
