Clayto, Win10 is a progressive download. There was an initial iso for the Preview, we all downloaded it, but when the RTM comes, it will come as an encrypted download directly on the machine, not a separate iso you can go to. Now, Aura suspects that later on, you will be able to go to download that. But as is, the Win10 process itself coming to your machine, just like Windows Updates.
Think of this analogy. You can go to takeaway (takeout, in American slang), or you can have the meal delivered to you as table d'hote (meal of the day, picked by the food service firm). If the meal is delivered, it's already boxed by the delivery service's terms, comes when the service comes, a kind of preset; you wait for it. Conversely, at least here in the States, if I go to get food, I get to pick it from a menu, and I get to pick up some other stuff at the site. The 'iso' is the whole menu, not tailored. The food delivery service, is a tailored preset.
So it's a matter of completeness. The download coming to you, has a file and a name, but .. what? By contrast, a public iso is at one address you go to when you want.
Not sure all of what I've typed here is wholly accurate, but someone will correct me if I err.
