I'm guessing that such a "anaconda in a locked-down environment" would
have to be installing packages from the network, since there certainly
isn't space on the disc for both a live image and the necessary RPMs.

At that point, what's the point of combining netinst and live?  Remove
the install-from-live support and have live images as just live images.

I don't speak for anybody but myself - that's enough trouble.
