The main reason is size - if you're deploying quite a lot of the images,
size does start to matter. We should have an Atomic host that's as small
as possible.

That doesn't rule out a separate build for developers or whatever that
uses Atomic/rpm-ostree, but I strongly feel we should have an Atomic
Host image that's as small as possible with the idea that users are
never directly SSH'ing into the image.*
