I'd strongly suggest looking at the diskimage-builder project that's
part of the TripleO program. Someone has already done a POC of turning
it in to an aaS, and there are already people working on tying
diskimage-builder elements and heat templates. Given that OpenStack has
prior art and work in this direction, you should be able to accelerate
getting to your goals pretty quickly.
