That's simply not the case. It's an option during the install, hence it's
a stock install. Going beyond a stock install should mean bolting stuff on
after the new machine has come up and is ready for general use.
And so is a 'custom' install by this logic. I am guessing that Red Hat
should really just have a Henry Ford install option with one choice
of minimal for installing. Makes Red Hat's job much easier.. you can always
customize the distro afterwords.
 Paraphrase of Henry Ford: You can have a model T in any color you
want, as long as it is black.
