Rerolling an ISO has a number of problems. From increased load on
mirrors, to issues like the installer needing to be updated for
each release, additional testing etc.

It's not as simple as 'run some script, and out pops a new iso'.

Given FC releases are supposed to be every 6 months or so, it's
really not worth the pain to do intermediate releases.
