Minimal Image and Morph

With all this wonderful and interesting talk about minimal images and 
cleaning up morph, I had a question.

Would one of these supershrunk images (as small possible, but as large 
as necessary) be able be become the basis or a basis for building 
3.5/3.6 image. Take the minimal image, make it a kernel image and then 
add SM Packages and run.

Then someone can start carving out (refactoring...) Morph and producing 
a minimal Morph library (package) for the kernel image. We could then 
begin to rebuild Squeak from a foundation up.

Is this reasonable or feasable?

Just tossing out a few thoughts.
