The 'hub' model means I'm going to have to ask at which point, because
you end up back at the main installer screen after configuring things,
which can be done in any order so far as I know. So is this, for
example, after configuring the installation destination or before?
Will it even let you into the installation destination menus?

It sounds like the answer will be a no.
It looks similar to this bug,
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=854471 which is marked as
fixed, if you were able to set up an installer destination did you
have mount points specified?
