I think that's been supported for quite a while now. From anaconda's
install-methods.txt:

- FTP/HTTP (from a directory of loopback-mounted ISOs)
------------------------------------------------------
 
  Summary:
      Pulls files from tree via FTP.  Looks in 'disc1/' directory to
contain files from CD #1, 'disc2/' for CD #2, etc.  These can be created
on the server by loopback mounting the ISO images into these directories
under the directory made available to ftp.
