No... Builds 4051+ do not show the revision name in WinVer

You can check the edition in regedit, navigate to HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion and look for the value EditionID. It should say the edition as the value.

Well. Is it possible to find out the editor purely from the ISO image?

Open up the longhorn image and find NTOSKRNL.EXE or NTOSKRNL.EX_ (You'll need to extract it if it's the last one) and then right click on it and look at the version info.

NTOSKRNL only has the version number, not the edition. I think they wanted to find out the edition (e.g. Professional), and not the build number.

I'm certain that he can find the edition in the .iso name if he gets his builds from BA.

Open ISO and install.wim file with 7-zip and then [1].xml file. Check the edition in the IMAGE INDEX=1 section under NAME or DESCRIPTION:
