Handed off to RHEV build folks.
The RHEV-H developers may know more about this than I. I have not been testing explicitly for this bug.
RHEV-H kickstart removes check0 section, so frankly we don't care.
But looking at RHEL6.2-20111117.0-Workstation-x86_64-Live.iso I can verify this bug is fixed:
menu label Boot
append initrd=initrd0.img root=live:CDLABEL=RHEL6.2-20111117.0-Workstation-x rootfstype=auto ro liveimg quiet rhgb rd_NO_LUKS rd_NO_MD rd_NO_DM
menu label Verify and Boot
append initrd=initrd0.img root=live:CDLABEL=RHEL6.2-20111117.0-Workstation-x rootfstype=auto ro liveimg quiet rhgb rd_NO_LUKS rd_NO_MD rd_NO_DM check
Commit from comment 7 is applied in livecd-tools-031-4.el6.
check0 section for RHEL6.2-20111117.0-Workstation-x86_64-Live.iso contains additional dracut parameters (thank you Alan).
Moving this bug to VERIFIED.
