"All" is the biggest possible number, potentially infinite. So logically, of course the only answer is "no".

DMGs are native to the OS, as is the AppleScript used to automate making them look attractive.

LC has a reasonably nice Windows installer framework, which we all use every time we install LC.

I don't think anyone here is expecting LC or any other tool vendor to provide all possible solutions to a given problem.

One suitable solution in the box is all that's needed, with the option for folks to turn it off if they prefer using any other of the infinite variety of all possible solutions.
