"Missing stuff" is not a big problem if you can get to the point where 
yum works.  I'd love to see an absolutely minimal CD/USB with just the 
filesystem and raid tools you might need to prepare a disk/raid set and 
then do an install to the point where the network and yum works.  If you 
are concerned about matching what the DVD install contains you could 
include scripts with the package lists to pull in later.
