I guess I have no immediate solution for this case, then. However, I'd
rather try to develop some solution than let this be a sticking point
holding back everyone else.

One thing an advanced user in this situation could do is configure a yum
repository with a package containing the /root/.ssh/authorized_keys file.

But really, it seems like the "can't get to a shell during/after an install"
can leave you stuck in a number of cases, not just this one....
