I'll check them out once I have a working way of turning them into images.

Well, we carry a full set of woody images today, and I think we will carry
a full set of woody images after the release too. Sure, it will take a
while to mirror them, but it should be done in a couple of days, depending
on bandwidth, server load and so on.

Of course, for the major mirrors after the release, this will be way too
long and put too much load on the master server.

Yes, this is why I'm trying to get a working jigdo around here.

Sounds fine. Just define the official directory tree and naming and put up
the additional files in the correct places, so this is known in advance.
That way the jigdo-mirror script (or some additional script called that
moves stuff around) can be written in advance and know where it should put
the images.
