I understand that you want to ship isolated images for each of the

However, there is gonna be a lot of duplicated bits in those images.
Can't we use some form of image where the duplicated blocks can be
shared. Seems like an obvious win to me.
The format of an iso9660 directory makes it easy to share entire files:
just set the first sector number of the contiguous extent. However
the multi-session aspect of the "all-in-one" platter might put each
session into its own "container", which might interfere with sharing
across sessions. Intentional un-checked wrap-around comes to mind.
