It's not really practical. One of the problems is that debian-installer
currently doesn't build on the ports architectures as it tries to pull
udebs during build from the main FTP server which carries the release
architectures only [1].

So, if we were to automate the image creation, fixing debian-installer
on the buildds would be the first thing to do. Helge Deller from the
hppa porters wanted to look into the d-i issue at some point, he has
also got commit access to the d-i git repository.
