It might be possible, but I doubt fdisk(8) or pdisk(8)
can handle iso images as is.
(Especailly Apple partition map has variable sizes)

If we have to add some tweaks to fdisk/pdisk to handle ISO9660 quirks,
I'm not sure if it's realy worth to remove MBR/APM stuff from makefs(8),
which really knows about ISO9660 internal structures.

IMO current makefs(8) implementation is acceptable compromise.
