My experience is I build with kickstart/satellite and at the end inject my own 
one time run script on reboot and finish off the customisation then. Easier to 
do and easier to maintain.

I am sorry, but I must respectfully disagree about specifying packages
that are not in the ISO. I just tried it:

You have specified that the package 'freeipa-client' should be
