1) Requires a completely new set of tools for provisioning that is
different from everything else you use
2) Requires a number of manual steps
3) Doesn't give good support for things like SELinux
4) Requires you to manage kernels for guests from the host. Which means
you install some stuff to the guest, but the kernel you have to special
case -- just weird
Using anaconda is far, far nicer. Plus, it will continue to work as the
distro changes instead of requiring changes to a weird set of steps.
