This is a small thing, but wouldn't be a good practice for firstboot to change
the entry to 'off' with chkconfig after completing first boot activities?

As a security practice, we tell sysadmins to know and tweak their services list
via chkconfig.  This setting stands out because it is named 'firstboot' and yet
remains on after that; it's a bit ironic.

It's intentional that the firstboot in f8 does not chkconfig itself off, as this
was a workaround for some corner case involving the timeout on the text
firstboot interface.  In f8 it's not doing anything other than checking if it
needs to run and then bailing out, so there's not really any harm.  Regardless,
the next release of firstboot that I am testing in Rawhide will chkconfig off
itself after running to completion so this bug will be fixed there.
