It's not the RPM files that matter so much as the install run-time files.
You can have extra RPMs lying around, as long as you have the xfs
installer bits, it will use the right RPMs.

Not really. We had to dig around in the anaconda source to figure it out.
There was a thread on the red hat kickstart-list a while ago that might
