Quickly implemented (as live-media=bus=LIST), and then realized it's
a bad idea: it prevents booting from DVD. So we would need either
a crappy UI such as live-media=cd-or-bus=LIST (terrible to document
etc.), or to add this option only at installation time (that basically
requires the same amount of work than the full-blown solution
described on #6397, without any real advantage).

Giving up.
