Self-contained GuixSD Installer

Does a self-contained GuixSD installer exist? I tried running GuixSD
in a VM (in VBox, on macOS), and for that I downloaded the ISO image.
The ISO image, after a few prompts, then tries to install everything
from the internet.

If everything is being downloaded and installed from the internet, why
does the image have to be so huge (~500MB

Is it possible to deliver the /gnu/store on the ISO so that a minimal
system can be installed and started, without having to connect to the
Internet? The user is free to install and upgrade packages from the
internet, but they should be able to run GuixSD without the Internet
being a hard requirement.

Best regards,
Gurjeet Singh
