I think we should continue to ignore it along with not depending alpha 
on a working graphical desktop or in more current terms 
of any kind

Alpha criteria should only be built around...

Install ( Criteria that matches Anaconda or any other installer we might 
have )
boot into
Working ( criteria that can fit any network application )
1 working language ( US UTF-8 ) with sane password support ( not 
supporting some password craziness like triple tab entry's and what not.

We seem to be more and more starting migrating Alpha into Beta criteria  
Alpha != Beta

Reporters should expect various things not working in alpha such is the 
nature of the rawhide beast..

Just my 2 cents
