It's worth bearing in mind there's a giant anaconda UI rewrite still
pending, which entirely redesigns the storage configuration GUI. One of
the other major changes is that it makes all installations
kickstart-driven. The GUI will just produce a kickstart file, which
anaconda will then process to perform the actual install.

It's not a direct response to any of the points raised so far, but it's
worth bearing in mind while you're having this argument that F18
anaconda is going to look drastically different from F17 anaconda.
