you can do that but dont think that it will reduce the size of the install.wim file.

WIM files use a difference algorithm meaning only the difference between the editions is saved. Since Ultimate has everything, the reduction in size will be very very minimal. Can remove all the eddition you do not want by recreating the install.wim with imagex. Do this by exporting the ones you want into a new wim file. Also with recreating the wim, can use high compression.
