Beg to disagree. Anaconda should just concentrate on getting the real
Fedora image installed so that it becomes the running system (its kernel
and filesystem is used). You can argue for it at firstboot, though. Or
just put it in kickstart (if possible).

Then you must agree with me that Anaconda should enable just the service's that are the mandatory one's and no other..
For a system functional  installation...
And the user enables the rest of the services himself during first boot, first login or when ever he chooses to do so...

If we are gonna go the way to let the system make the decision for the user then where are we gonna draw the line on how *smart*
the system is....

Lets just go all the way!!!!...

Anaconda should then be able to install *default* installation for the user in no more then 3 <mouse> clicks..

User inserts CD/DVD/USB/<other possible media formats> boots up AND ends up in Anaconda <Advanced user can press and hold down or do some glorious key combination to enter linux terminal installation prompt where he can type *Advanced* kernel parameters.. ( askmethod text etc.. )

First Menu...
presentation..
Legal stuff accept/decline <click1> --->

User is presented with installation types Desktop <click2> System does educated guess on user preference --->
                                                Server/Advanced
Finish screen... User presented with reboot < click3 >

3 mouse clicks!!! no more no less..
