You might have to give 'ext4' on the installer boot command line to 
enable ext4

Anaconda fsset.py has the code:

         # this is tech preview at present...
         if flags.cmdline.has_key("ext4"):
             self.supported = -1
             self.supported = 0

which is the same way it works with other non-supported file systems
