The issue with doing such tasks in anaconda is that people will also 
want to do things like install packages, extensions etc after 
installation. That means that the functionality has to be duplicated and 
maintained in two different places. Add to the fact that anaconda is not 
a full desktop, it makes it harder to provide a great experience for the 
user in anaconda to do such tasks.

At the moment, the installer is pretty much reserved for tasks that 
*need* to get done to install the system and get into the Workstation 
environment, where there is a much better place to make a cleaner 
experience for users to complete such tasks.
