The reason for having the core and extended variants is because QorIQ 
needs to be able to generate smaller images and we want to make things 
as common as possible.  We don't want to have image recipes that are 
completely tied to only one business group.  The way we came up to do 
that was with the 4 different "levels" of recipes and corresponding 

I can modify and re-use existing recipes, although we thought that would 
be riskier than making new ones.
