Not ruled out, but also not implemented by anyone yet, as far as I know.

You are quite welcome to propose some implementation of such 
functionality.  It does not even require any specific hardware to work 
on that: Just install a fresh minimal (i.e. no desktop or other install 
profile) Debian system on any computer containing relevant hardware 
(dual ethernet, wifi etc.), customize it, and share your choice of 
package installs and changes to configuration files.

Several devices are cheaper an more powerful nowadays: 

What you reference is only "MSRP" which I guess is "Manufacturer's 
suggested retail price".  Makes sense to consider only when actually 
available for sale!

Generally computers need to work with Debian, and preferrably they 
should use Open Hardware.
