Hi Sam

Thank your for this very thorough review of image creation tools.
You made me google for "object oriented shell programming" ...

But ...
could you maybe also have a looker at packer ? (
https://packages.debian.org/stretch/packer ) It can create image for
various virtualization platforms and cloud providers.

Contrary to the tools you mentionned packer mostly create disk images
via calling a virtualization software running the debian installer.
You have then the full customization of the debian installer preseed
hooks. Now packer will not create live CDs.

I am using packer with success to create the VirtualBox Vagrant debian
box at https://wiki.debian.org/Teams/Cloud/VagrantBaseBoxes
