Now I've checked macppccd.iso and FreeBSD's hfs-boot, and
it seems they have a small HFS behind of iso9660.
(though I'm not sure if MacOS (for mac68k bootstrap) can mount FreeBSD's one)

Probably your question is now "why we have put emul-boot and ElTorito
boot support into makefs(8)?"

The answer might be that they were heavily tied to ISO9660 spec?
Other MD (Apple, CHRP, Acorn etc) formats as well?
(and Sun's format is simple enough to handle with shell script?)
