We provide miboot images at the moment, we have done so in the past, so I 
don't see why we can't provide them for releases. Of course, we as in "debian 
main" can't provide them, so they need to be available in some other place, 
which should be mentioned in a README. But building them at home should not 
be necessary ;)
