Please no. Once Fedora is installed it really ought to be able to
upgrade itself without needing new boot media twice a year, that's just
not user friendly. It's also much safer to first download everything and
then start the RPM transaction. (IIUC a normal Anaconda upgrade will
download packages during the upgrade.)
