Sure, its easy for people who know the rpm package names to install it
from a shell. However, bluetooth is getting to be widespread enought
that people just expect it to work without having to do special magic. I
mean, removing it is only one click in the installer or one yum command
too if you have specific diskspace requirements.

Of course, bumping us to needing 3 CDs for a default install could be a
problem.
