Wile users might be able to handle such questions (I would avoid calling
them stupid even otherwise), it is contrary to the goals of the installer.
The Fedora installer is explicitly designed to do the absolute minimum
necessary to get the installation up and running.   Everything else should
be handled post installation.  The reason is that additional complexity
increases the chances of bugs in that codebase and installer issues cannot
be fixed post release easily and can delay the releases.  Pushing it to end
users is also often the easy way out and almost always the wrong solution.
