The debian-live goal is not to have already-generated images,  but to
give people (including you and your project) a way to generate custom
images really fast.

Yeah but in your case, debian-live would (have) help(ed) you to build
your project by not taking care of how the cd should boot, in various
environment, how to build the cd itself, etc.

Take a look at the project, it can be really helpful. I already used a
debian-live with the 3 main desktop environments on a demo box without
hard drive, for Solutions Linux 2008.
