Generally, .iso is just a file system of CD/DVD. Using mkisofs (or
equivalent) you can put into it whatever you wish. You can thus put there
the installed TEXMF tree. A Linux user will mount it and modify PATH. A
Windows user will mount it and will have to do something via tlmgr to make
it known by the system. Yes, it is difficult for Windows users but you
could probably make an Autorun which will do it automatically when the .iso
is mounted.
