I suspect, the above scenarios are more likely in custom partitioning
use cases (which seems common enough).  

A few follow-up questions as it relates to F11 ...

      * If we don't fix this, are there workarounds we can document in
        https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Common_F11_bugs 
      * If we do fix this, what other partitioning areas would be
        impacted?  Would this warrant a reset of all F11 partitioning
        testing?
      * Should this bug be on the F11AnacondaBlocker list? 

Thanks,
James
