One angle on this that didn't get pointed out, I guess because
team apparently isn't reading, is that at least one person on the
anaconda team - I forget who - hates liveinst with a passion and has
been proposing forever to kill it and replace it with a choice on the
live image boot menu between 'boot a live desktop' and 'install' (which
would run anaconda in a locked-down environment, just like on the DVD /
netinst). If that plan were to actually happen it would kinda supersede
all the other suggestions, I think.
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.
At that point, what's the point of combining netinst and live? Remove
the install-from-live support and have live images as just live images.

I don't speak for anybody but myself - that's enough trouble.
