Would it be rude to yawn?

Anaconda (Red Hat's installer) has supported both telnet and VNC for a

YaST/linuxrc (SUSE's installer) has supported both SSH and VNC for a
long time.

I don't consider lack of encryption a big deal. Installs should always
be performed in an isolated environment anyway... Unless you're stuck
using and Internet dependent installer like Gentoo's. ;-)
