A couple of things - first of all, it looks like I made a mistake.
This does not work with a standard floppy image.

It doesn't work with an ISO image either. I believe that there are
loopback mounting that are part of GRUB2 that will do this directly.

I don't think I understand what you're saying, and if I do, then I most certainly disagree.

I _have_ made a bootable CD with grub (and my own picture, of a Jersey heifer I took at the Royal Show a while back).

This reads the CD:
/usr/share/grub/i386-redhat/iso9660_stage1_5
