They didn't the last time I checked, which I believe was beta TC2.

Just checked again in a test VM and I don't see any way to use the free
space in the existing VG.  (vgdisplay reports 7.74 GiB free of 19.48

On the left hand side, I see:

- New Fedora 18-Beta-TC2

    You haven't created any mount points for your
    Fedora 18-Beta-TC2 installation yet:

    Or, create new mount points below with the '+'

- CentOS Linux 6.3 for x86_64


    Root            7.92 GB
    Swap          4.09 GB

- Unknown
    Unknown         19.97 GB

    Unknown            498 MB

    Unknown          19.97 GB

When I attempt to add a 6GB "mount point" for /, I get a "not enough
free space on disks" error.

So how's it supposed to work?

Sometimes there's nothing left to do but crash and burn...or die trying.
