I'm not exactly sure it fits that well into dib; it seems like
"bundle" has it mostly figured out.  I say that based on [1] where we
are discussing a similar thing for cirros images with watchdog

As mentioned we can easily build these and store them, and put them on
mirrors if we need them closer to nodes.  What I mentioned in [1] and
didn't particularly like is if the build of these images is totally
removed from where they're actually used (e.g. a custom script inside
a job in project-config, where basically anyone outside infra can't
easily replicate the build for a local test).  But if several projects
are building slightly different cusomised cirros images, it might be
worth consolidating.
