I swear I have always wished for this, Fedora does this now so there is
likely no technical reason a static pointer to the mirror list can't be
used unless a 'list' requires a newer version of Anaconda. The only
downside to using a static url would be all the netinstall's pointing
to the same mirror.
One of the reasons I always make sure I have a kickstart available to
avoid all that typing...
