Hm, I didn't find one filed against firstboot (and hence did it
myself: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=185634).

I'm not sure doing it during installation is a great idea though: it
enhances the "magicalness" of the system, which is good, but a user
might have legitimate reasons for *not* wanting updates applied, too. 
I suppose it could be an option during install as easy as it could be
a question in firstboot though.
