I also agree that this is a good solution.

Console-setup-udeb already does this, the initial patch for this was by
Colin Watson (July 15, 2007) and recently in 1.44 I changed it not to
apt-install on computers without a keyboard. There is one change
compared to what kbd-chooser does. If a serial console is used for the
installation but the computer has a keyboard, then console-setup will be
installed and questions about the keyboard will be asked.
