A few nitpiks I have with this.

Why is systemd-boot the default for UEFI booting? systemd-boot isn't even mentioned in the real arch install wiki page. Also, why can't you make swap bigger? My poor laptop can't handle anything. It needs more swap.

No boot loaders are mentioned in the guide, so that's hardly a criteria for complaint.

Also, the whole point of a guided install script is that you accept someone else is going to make choices for you. If you don't like those choices, just install Arch they way you want to.

Jason, I was searching for the correct way to say just that.  Well said.

The people working on it should have some regaurd for the users.

The people working on it should do whatever the hell they feel like.  If you don't like it, don't use it.  The guided installer is not required to be used nor even expected.

If you want to change the way it works and have it do whatever the hell you feel like, then you should become one of the people working on it.  Submit a patch; if your code is good, it will have a good chance of being accepted.

Re: A few nitpiks I have with this.

For a long time, we had no installer.  As it is now part of the infrastructure, the moderators created a sub forum to support it. 
Taking of my staff hat, I personally think it a poor idea.
Replacing my staff hat, this project, like all Arch projects, are created and maintained by volunteers who get to make the decisions -- because they are putting forth the effort.
You are more than welcome to fork it and create a version that suits your peccadilloes.
