Releasing guix binary in Docker format too?

I'm working with Heads on using Guix to build Heads' source code reproducibly.

Now, Heads has most of its stuff on CI servers that use Docker for a lot of

Therefore, I used Guix pack in the usual way to create a recent Guix
binary release and then just loaded that into a docker container, using that to
run "guix build".

That got me thinking--this situation is pretty common.  Do you think it would
make sense to actually build and release a Docker container for Guix (not
guix system; just guix-the-package-manager)?

While I was researching gitlab, I came across a feature where they have their
own Docker container registry on there.  Apparently, the Docker CLI can fetch
from whatever server the user wants!

$ docker run [options] [arguments]

That got me thinking, we could easily also release Guix on something like
that.  Is our HTTP webserver enough to have a Docker registry, without
installing extra stuff?

$ docker run localhost/foo
Unable to find image 'localhost/foo:latest' locally
docker: Error response from daemon: Get "http://localhost/v2/": dial tcp connect: connection refused.


Do we want to do it?
