Newui Anaconda as system-config-kickstart

Thinking about the newui Anaconda used as system-config-kickstart or
disk image installer, one simple question (probably with no simple
answer) came to my mind -- Do we need to run Anaconda as root in these
cases? Or could we, at least, lower the privileges when we don't need
them? I believe this could help us debug the unintentional modifications
of the system and maybe, in some cases, actually fix it.

What if the user wants to use the newui Anaconda as a
system-config-kickstart running for example Fedora 16 to make a
kickstart for Fedora 18? We want such user to choose from the list of
available layouts, but the lists of layouts for Fedora 16 and Fedora 18
differ. And I believe there are many such problems, not only with this
one with the layouts configuration.
So, should we create a separate package with a simple shell script
(running Anaconda) and a bunch of various data that would allow Anaconda
provide options depending on the target system rather than on the system
Anaconda is running on?
