Description of problem:
I've looked through the RFE's and have not found anything similar to this, but if there is, then I appologise now if this is a duplicate.

I was wondering if it would be possible (or useful to others) to specify a percentage (or upto X amount) of disk to be used on a per partition basis. 

The thinking behind this came after installing many clients using kickstart that had different sized disks.

You can already basically do this... sizes + growing end up being percentages.

ie, if you have
part /boot --size=100
part / --size=30 --grow
part /home --size=70 --grow

Then, /home ends up being 70% of the remaining space and / is 30%
