Great, that helps a great deal.

Correct - there is no such image yet. The installers will need to be
rebuilt for the point release to add this support (which we'll need to
negotiate with the installer team).

Correct. You should be able to install in another machine (e.g., an
SB600) and upgrade, then swap the disks.

It is possible to build your own installer w/ a custom kernel, but its
not a path I would suggest if the disk-swap procedure is workable.
