That's indeed the plan; see my Live CD presentation I gave at the RH
summit for some future features we want to add


which includes this.

Note I'm not working actively on the Live CD tools right now so Jeremy
probably knows better when that feature is going to land; it shouldn't
be more than a nights or two work to get something up and running; it's
basically just adding some network drivers and user-mode bits (dhcp
client etc.) to the (pretty flexible) initramfs that the live cd uses.
