yes and no. We have some liberty to change / adapt the install class's
based on what comes down stream ( remember, we normalise the distro core
to remove variant specific / pricing specific options from upstream ).

The install classes and groups are things that we build, locally, in
CentOS - in an attempt to match what is pushed downstream. If there are
issues, its certainly worth testing to see if its a centos induced issue
or not.
