Was anything ever decided about what the best way to re-bundle an
official Canonical 9.10 image is? Nothing appears to be added to the
RC version of command-not-found.

Additionally, I'd like to see more information about best practices /
things that can potentially break when re-bundling an official image.
What kinds of settings are locked at the point when the image first
comes up?

I can see this being a good addition to the EC2 FAQ here:
