It's a bit too late to do for anaconda at this point.  Plus, not sure
where it would (ui-wise) make sense to be.  Perhaps on the firstboot
extra CDs screen, but that's still difficult due to the fact that the
interaction is less than idea.  Eventually, system-config-packages
should really know about them and be able to display things (that's
always been the plan, just lack of 'round 'tuits)

Can't do this.

The other thing is that the official Extras as such doesn't completely
exist yet.  Yes, fedora.us is what it will be, but I at least would
rather wait until we have it all in the same server structure before we
do much along these lines.
