We can create an optional test case for that.
Do you think this is something we should block our release on (i.e. creating a release criteria for it)?
I tried BFO a few times and I've found it heavily outdated every time (including today) so I wasn't particularly thrilled about it.
Also, I'm not fully sure who should benefit from it. If you need to install Fedora, you do it once in a long time, and there's no problem to download ISO and boot it. If you install Fedora often (e.g. you're QA), booting from the Internet every time is a no-go, not until it's as fast as your USB flash drive.
