Not quite true.

Instead of building "all images", you could build a minimalist network install image, which installs from "Everything"+"updates".

I don't know how you build images, but it's hard to image building such an image frequently (e.g. whenever any package it contains has changed) is "such kind of expensive".

An alternative would be, to ship a script to let people build such an image themselves. It would not help everybody in all situations, but it at least help people who have some (other) version of Fedora running somewhere.
