No installer will not fix this.

How network interface get their device names is that first the Kernel 
assigns one then userspace will rename it when udev sees it.

However ( hopefully ) this will be permanently fixed in F19 and onwards 
via [1].
( the changes are already in rawhide and yes this will fix the annoying 
ks/cobbler ethX bug everyone is familiar with )
