Weak point:

Unless you are prepared to do full intensive QA on the updated distro,
the quality of these updated ISOs can be significantly lower than the
quality of the original release ISO.  Since it will look, for all
intents and purposes, like the release ISO, that level of quality will
be what people expect of it.
