It doesn't really help with the initial compose and the bandwidth cost
of putting the bits /somewhere/ to be made public.

It would still have to sit on our torrent server, and chew up disk
space/bandwidth to move it around.

In my mind, with the way things currently are, yes.

The more I think about it, the more I think we should ask Infrastructure
to give us a resource budget, bandwidth/hardware/etc... and we should
design the releases' spins accordingly to fit into that budget.  rel-eng
budget it just man power, and I'm sure I could get some volunteers to
make composes happen, so it really comes down to infrastructure to
compose/host it all.
