Installer partition layout to allow "Whole Disk Usage"
Currently the installer doesn't provide any option for Whole Disk Usage for a single purpose (such as rootfs or swap or /home etc...). Whole disk usage means there is no partition table and that file-system or swap is formatted directly.
This has use-cases for virtulization where it is easier for the hypervisor to provision two block devices to the guest, one for rootfs and one for swap. These may come from LVM, SAN, etc... it is easier to manage because resizing either is a straight forward event due to the single purpose of each block device.
One possible option to shoe-horn it into the UI would be under the Expert.../Advanced... buttons when either a partition or a disk device is selected. More ideas suggested in the bugzilla link further down this comment.
Other possible considerations go with the bootloader options for installing GRUB. It would need to be adjusted to disallow/auto-disable MBR when no partition table is present. But the option still remains to install in the rootfs.
Also submitted as enhancement in Bugzilla (Bug #628056); please read there, since this contains other comments not found here.
