Answering myself: no.
The procedure I used now is in short:
unsquashfs the squashfs.img
add a few files to the home dir on ext3fs.img, just for testing
mksquashfs the new squashfs.img from the squashfs-root tree
extract all stuff from the iso to a directory tree, replace the
squashfs.img with the new one. Then mkisofs the directory to a new iso.
Seems to has worked just fine. The resulting CD looks the same as the
original one, just with additional translation tables and a slightly
Problem: at boot the kernel finally panics because of a problem with
initrd. It "can't find root file system" and drops me to a shell.
Why would I need a new initrd if I just add a few static files?
