Ahh...I'm confused.  How do you get to this state?  It sounds like
something preupgrade could handle in any case.

Let me take a step back - here's all I'm trying to say: The user
experience of the live images is way better than anaconda-the-OS, and
we should be sure users who don't explicitly want a
choose-your-own-adventure are getting the live images.  Especially
from things like trade shows.

The minimal image is a targeted product in the sense that it's
intended for people to build higher-level products on, like virtual
machine appliances and the like.  We wouldn't expect people to take
the minimal image and then try to convert it into a desktop
workstation.
