Of course it does. If you have set DISTRO and MACHINE, you can
bitbake core-image-minimal
bitbake core-image-x11
bitbake ... whatever image.

Thats exactly the point of the MACHINE / DISTRO / IMAGE seperation.
Yes, up to there everything is clean and nice.
And I understand I can build multiple images. I have used this feature
since 2006.

My point is, that we do not support images of images correctly. Or, I
do not understand how it works.

If I have an initramfs image, my next step is to build a disk image
that has the initramfs.cpio.gz, but without generating a new rootfs.

How would I do that?
