I sort of have something, I've updated dracut-modules-olpc's
30-customization initrd to install rpms addition to activities off-line.
Have a look at:
This works with well with an unlocked XO and olpc.fth script. You would
have to sign the kernel/initrd with you key if you have your XOs locked.
I haven't tried to sign kernel/initrd outside of os-builder yet.
