in fact it is only a handfull of packages, mainly theme stuff like
ubuntu-artwork and its deps, ubuntu-docs etc ...

to roll your own distro on top of an ubuntu base you can use a PPA
to hold your own theme and metapackages (unless you want to build arm
or powerpc images)

while its not super trivial it is also not rocket science ;)
