kernel and initramfs in flash is sufficent, no need for a separate /boot
partition. The setup you want is slightly complex, but it should still
be fairly simple to setup in d-i. Not simple in sense of "just hit next"
but rather "if know partitioning well enough to want such a setup,
you will manage to setup partitions relatively easily in d-i partitioner".
If you have any ideas howto make partioner easier, debian-boot is
probably a better venue as partitioning not really a arm-specific
"rm -rf" only sounds scary if you don't have backups
