Consider an environment where network authentication is desired but OS
choice is not enforced. People are likely to download and want to use the
Fedora Desktop spin on their desktop computers.

But this is all really a moot point because I think it's highly unlikely
that anaconda will go back to its old behavior -- that stuff was moved out
for reasons other than policy.
