With yum based Anaconda, I can add any repos I want to at install time and then select a customized set of packages from all of them.  This means that if you produce a CD/DVD that I can download and you put the proper repodata/ (and comps?) on the disc, then I can use it.

But why would you want to produce such an image?  It would be out of date before the first person finished downloading it.  It might work, as long as people do not include any live over-the-network updated or updates repos in their installs.  So, I guess it would be useful when someone has a need to install in an isolated environment/network without Internet access.

So, I'm not sure if it would be that useful or not.

I am not a lawyer, I will refrain from sharing any comment in that regard.
