Those options haven't existed since way back around F8 or FC6 or
somewhere.  It's been a very, very long time.

For SELinux at least, it's because we consider running SELinux to be
part of what's included in a running Fedora system.  The firewall is
just a good idea.

To be fair, all of these things are still available via kickstart and if
you are doing a large number of installs, it does make sense that you
would be using kickstart for them.  I don't see whether you are or not
given the flood of email I'm constantly being buried under, though.
