Not disagreeing with your point, but just adding some random comments:
I would like to see sysinst mark the sets available on local medium specially,
and allow different sources for different sets.
That way you could do a full install from local sets and then continue getting
the latest pkgsrc and a binary-matching source sets or, at your wish, a
newer one via network.
However, this requires quite a bit of reorganization at the code level.
Moving secondary fetches to post-install time might be an option, but on the
other hand a single "ask all questions now" phase early and basically
unattended installation later has its merits.
