I already answered this.

GRUB does not support parsing El Torito boot catalog and accessing
boot image ... at least to my knowledge. So sorry, this is probably
not possible right now.

Besides the problem is not as much reading CD boot block as emulating
"real" CD for the code that would be launched. I do not say it is not
possible, but so far nobody implemented this in GRUB.
