You can add the following snippet to the fedora-desktop ks file into a init

since firstboot wouldn't have launched then. Let me know what you think:

I agree the overall concept makes sense.  Some questions to consider:

1) Are we too far into the F10 process for this?

It's a fairly simple change. You can stick it in the current ks file and do a compose and test or if you want me to do that and post a image for further testing, I can.

2) How does this interact with the default PolicyKit configuration?

PolicyKit configuration should be tweaked to accept user password like you said but I don't know about the details much.

3) How do other important OS vendors use sudo, is there a chance to
harmonize a bit?
4) Does it still make sense to have a root password (and root account)?

Are you asking about disabling the root account by default? Not possible without Anaconda changes and at this point, I wouldn't think about anything major for this release atleast.
