No, because selecting packages depends on your repo selection.  If you
want to add CD repos and have booted the installer off of a CD, you will
need to swap CDs.  That means we're going to have to put the installer
image somewhere.  By being able to guarantee that the partitions are
committed to disk already, we can always have a place to move the
installer image to.
