There were some helpful posts for creating a multi-OS install disc that was taken down a few years back. Mainly how to build a custom USB device that allows one to install Windows, as well as other Linux OSes. It was not Arch centric; but, it greatly simplified system administration, and Arch bloat for maintaining such a disc.
I'm using Ventoy [ https://www.ventoy.net/en/isolist.html ] to hold a persistent Xubuntu on a thumb drive. However, it's possible to just copy additional installs to this thumb drive, too. Since my thumb drive is ext formatted, in my case Windows won't work, but ext isn't the default. Maybe this is something similar to what you mentioned.
Ok, whatever "Arch bloat" is for, Ventoy doesn't help with maintaining an Arch install, so probably this is not similar to what you mentioned.
Ventoy is available either by
The Ventoy developer is subscribed to the Arch forums, https://bbs.archlinux.org/profile.php?id=133208 .
Related to Ventoy the Arch Wiki isn't much of a help, https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Ventoy .

^^^^^^^^ this should read "ISO" (not "installs")
My apologies, you mentioned "to install", so we are probably not talking about the same thing.
