It seems to me we still need a way to provide the WTG ISOs. Maybe
include an option in engine to upload them to the an ISO domain the
user creates?
Or perhaps find a way to make them available for use without defining
an explicit ISO domain?

Here the issue is different.
when running engine-setup the WGT iso is injected while the iso domain is not yet active.
At engine setup done, you'll have the engine, the inactive iso domain and the iso within it but only if you create the iso domain with engine-setup.

If you run engine-setup, create your own iso domain, and then on upgrade you run again engine-setup, WGT is not uploaded there.

So the existing WGT upload mechanism already is limited to only those installations born with iso domain creation on the same host.

Since we have iso-uploader and we'll have in 4.1 the ISO uploaded from web ui, I really think this mechanism can be dropped since it covers only what it seems to be a corner case.
