My suggested method was that you were presented with a user add option
in anaconda, but the ability to opt out (for say network login
systems).  If you opt-out then the no root login policy could be
lifted, but if you opt-in and create a local user then only that local
user would be allowed to graphical log in upon boot (unless you
manually change policy through a gui tool or a hand edit.)

But... how do you plan on fixing a system when networking is broken and one cannot login as root anymore?

Login as regular user and use su or switch to a VT. Ctl+Alt+F1
