Installation only?  or upgrades as well?
Cleally the fresh install case isnt the problem... its the Core upgrade case.
Doing a 2 stage install is trivial... a 2 stage upgrade on the other
hand is somewhat complex, since anconda will have to leave every 3rd
party or extras package in place with broken deps until first boot can
be run in your scheme.  You have to delibrately leave your system in
an inconsistent state when you reboot into it  and pray that the
reboot works even though the system is in an inconsistent state.
