I'm guessing that such a "anaconda in a locked-down environment" would
have to be installing packages from the network, since there certainly
isn't space on the disc for both a live image and the necessary RPMs.
Why? I don't see any obvious technical reason why it couldn't still
simply dump the live image onto the hard disk, as it (more or less) does
at present. If anything it'd be easier, because the image it was trying
to dump wouldn't be...the running environment. :)
