bootable image support

Are there any plans to support booting from floppy images, or from cdrom
ISO image files? If I have an ISO image of a bootable CD, it would be
nice to boot from it... or with an image file made from a floppy.  Maybe
something like this:

title Boot from image file
        rootnoverify --imagefile (hd0,2)/images/file.{iso,img,etc}
        chainloader --imagefile (hd0,2)/images/file.{iso,img,etc}

On another note, will cdrom drives ever be supported as harddrive are
now?  I ask because I would like to be able to boot GRUB from my MBR,
then tell it to boot from my CD drive, much as I do now with my floppy:

title Boot from Floppy Drive
        rootnoverify (fd0)
        chainloader +1 

Thank you,
