It doesn't seem to be, yet.

Correct.  I do not believe there is any provision for offering more than
one kernel when booting from CD.  palo does a raw search through the ISO
fs for the kernel file which matches the one specified with '-k' when the
image was built.  You'll find that modifying the boot command line to use
a different kernel has no effect, even if it is included on the iso.
