The cure is not to disallow features, but use right passwords.

If I recall well poor passwords can be set by root, but there
is a warning (at least when set with passwd).

Not when during installation however, it used to be, back in the RH
x.x days, but it go removed for reasons I am not sure.

Password strength warning? File a RFE.
