When making an image I like to extract the installesd.dmg file from the OS X installer app to strip out personal information from the app store download. Currently lightning cannot use the installesd.dmg file as the OS install. But, a "Install OS" does exist inside the installesd.dmg package. At this time it too is not usable as the OS installer in lightning. Would it be possible to make either of theses usable as the OS Installer to create clean images not tied to an apple id or machine id?

thank you for your suggestion. The Images generated with lightning work regardless of which machine you deploy them to, but we will consider your input for future releases.
