I don't know why I thought that installation guide have one mention to
rankmirrors. My memory have holes... :-D

IMHO, I think that is a good idea that the installation media have
mirror tools since the mirror selection may be a recommended task. I
did not know the existence of reflector, but it could be a good option
to include in the ISO.

Anyway is a very small package that can be installed after boot ISO.
