Totally agreed, I'll pop into #anaconda and see if they have any ideas
about some of the constraints there.

Yep definitely, once F14 is out the door I definitely want to start
working with the Anaconda team and post stuff here on-list as well as on
the wiki. If you want to start, that would be awesome - we should
probably map out what screens pop up in what order, DVD vs Live Media,
and note any confusions or issues we encounter when running through it.

It's a good thing though I think to be looking at how other distros/OSs
do it today, and to start thinking about the visual design, so thanks
for getting started already Luya!
