No, this is not actually possible.

The package to look at to implement this is iso-scan. Excerpt from its

                        if register_cd $iso_to_try $iso_device; then
                                # This could be more sophisticated, and try
                                # to deal with multiple Debian ISO's. For
                                # now, once we've got a Debian ISO, any
                                # Debian ISO, we're done.
                                db_progress STOP
