This seems like a nice installation path.  For a "featured role" I'd
expect more than a nice installation, though:
- Automatic integration to the machine-wide monitoring system (at the
very least, answering "is it up?", ideally also some key metrics)
- Automatic inclusion into the machine's backup regime, if any,
including any possible special tasks (creating a consistent DB
snapshot to be backed up, for example)
- Integration into the machine's configuration system (e.g. reacting
to networking setup changes?)

Also, the same installation functionality should be available for
automated deployment methods (this is kind of weird for the One And
Only IPA server, more necessary for any other role).
