Anaconda exists for many reasons.

I don't know of many distros offering all sorts of advanced storage
setup other than Anaconda.  Let's not re-invent the wheel ... again.

I think you completely missed the point of boot.kernel.org, it's got *NOTHING* to do with Anaconda. boot.kernel.org allows you to network boot a computer over the internet, with my original point & intent being - you don't need a media test when you network install a computer.

More or less exactly what you were suggesting, only I'm trying to take the 'expert' portion out of the statement.
