The last issue was, as you already discovered, addressed in bug 549.

Personally, I agree with Wolfgang, I really like the way it is done in Mageia.
But maybe under the word "custom" a line "package selection" could be added to
make it even more clear.

assigning to maintainer, so he can decide what to do with this request
