VirtualBox guest ISO package offers an ISO image which is used by 
VirtualBox software to install guest utilities. It's not an operating 
system but a CD image used by guest Linux, Windows and Solaris operating 
systems with the needed drivers.

While even the grml-iso could be considered unuseful, at least it aims 
to install it into the grub2 menu (using the grml-rescueboot package).

The tails-iso and the archlinux-iso packages do NOTHING at all, just 
wasting disk space without any other purpose.

Whoever will want a fresh Arch Linux image will have to download it from 
the official mirrors, what humans do since the installation images exist.
