Another alternative, is what i'm labeling "Customization Packs".
A 3rd party takes an official iso/image/vmdk and inserts an archive of

When an end-user goes to install said image, Installer will display
the Customization Pack in the Optional Packages frame. This mechanism
could even take precautions to ensure that the system/ and other
sensitive folders remains unchanged (aside from possibly updating
AboutSystem, replacing haiku_loader, or similar changes).
