    Imho, a tool doing the save restore from iso is missing. It's no the same goal than a customized ISO.


That is exactly what is needed.  A relatively simple tool to backup to .iso and restore.
The link below will take you to a debian tool called Refracta Snapshot which performs the above and which I have used many times.  It will take a snapshot to .iso which can be reinstalled in a total failure.  It is much quicker than reinstalling from scratch.

The major difference with Refracta is that it backs up  your running system, therefore no need to shutdown PC/server.

Very basically it rsyncs your system, squashfs the file system and then generates the bootable .iso.

I think what you are looking for is this: http://www.linux-live.org
Manjaro already has aufs support in kernel, so it is good candidate for linux live kit. Haven't gotten it working properly on my own system, but seems awesome. Note that you might need quite a lot of resources to build such large iso.

That does look interesting.  If you succeed a tutorial would be a good idea.  I am currently still working with buildiso and want to learn the full features before I move on to another project.

Their last download file date is 2013. Is their "current" any more current, I wonder?
