I just downloaded three ISO files for SQL Server 2012 with SP1 - DEV, STD, and ENT.  I just ran a compare on the media and it appears the only difference in each is a few bytes in the file "DefaultSetup.ini" because the PID depends upon the edition.  Because this is the only difference, it is a large waste of space to provide a separate ISO for each edition.  There should be just one ISO for all editions.  Another means of providing a "built-in PID" PID for the edition should be found.
