Having rootpw on command line is not good idea. Plaintext means it will
end up in bug reports and many other places, hash means it would be
really susceptible to errors and typos resulting in almost unusable
systems.

Kickstart files support %include, so the product/compose-specific things
may be defined in a kickstart file included in users' kickstarts.
