We should not assume we either have access to the ISO image, nor
rely on the output format of an external command. iso-info may change
the way it formats data. We might not even have the ISO image, for
example, we may only have access to specific metadata fields via some
remote metadata API like udev or libvirt. That's why we need to explicitly
look at specific metadata attributes of the image.
