I'd say that people like this probably want to start installing Fedora at
the point where no reversions of major Features are likely to occur.  So
they probably want to do their initial install at a point in the process
after Alpha.  I don't know where we match up though... the systemd reversion
was a bit of a mess and I don't know how the process is supposed to work as
opposed to how it did work this time around.
