Okay, why don't we then just make anaconda either:

- always "Core" install (you can install the rest in %post or after boot)

- always "Everything" install (you can remove what you don't want in
  %post or after boot)

It is kind of dumb to spend time, bandwidth, and disk space installing
packages only to immediately remove them (no matter how they are
removed).
