Yes.  It would apply the changes you describe reasonably easily.

(In my opinion the file name should have been HOWTO.xo-custom and
that's how I'm merging this contribution from Jerry.)

The XO must be unsecured, or the deployment keys must be used to sign
the kernel and initrd files.  Beware that unlike the original OLPC
customisation stick, Tiny Core Linux is not a secure environment, and
so if you find yourself signing make sure that the only reason you are
doing it is for ease of use, not deployment security.
