I for sure could write a script to have each host download the entire
ISO image, loopback-mount it and install the few packages I want. Huge
waste of time and of (CTAN!) bandwidth.

One of the problem I was describing is that:
install-tl -location http://my.server/expanded-ISO-image/
does not work, as documented in the help of "-location" (confirm?).
Using a NFS/SMB mount seems like a workaround.
