I'm just realizing the "full" images would also need the .dtb file(s)
for the relevent platforms.

I don't know how realistic it is to provide concatenateable images with
the u-boot "bare" image as one file, and the kernel + initrd + dtb +
boot.scr as a second file to be appended to the bare image... but this
would minimize duplicate content considerably, at some expense in
installation instructions.

I've mostly been testing the netboot images and manually creating boot
scripts for them, but I'll give a go at testing some hd-media images as
