Creating spells as you cast (ie casting on the fly) is possible at Magic 25.
Aysle is Magic 24.
There is a reason for this...basically we couldn't come up with a good system for doing such a thing at this point, at least not one that we could do in the core book. However, we did want it close enough that some isolated areas of Aysle COULD theoretically do it.
That got me to thinking about other possible Axioms that could bump and open up some new options. After all, if this was the designers' thinking for Aysle magic, perhaps there are other considerations. So looking at it, these stand out to me. Keep in mind that a small area like a city or region could increase in axioms first so it doesn't mean the entire cosm has to increase to see some of this, and some increases are temporary. Spoiler tags engaged in case I'm right about something, and because I mention some secrets of the setting.
